THE MAGNIFICAT. 

Mdt/nificat an'tina meet Dominion. 

S. Luke i: 46. 

PREFACE. 

This volume of sacred sons: takes its title Magnificat from the opening words of 
the Song of Mary: — "My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit hath rejoiced 
in God my Saviour." 

These words declare the distinctive doctrine of the New Church, that Jesus 
Christ in His Divine Humanity is the one Lord, God, and Saviour of mankind; and 
this volume is designed for the use of those who in this faith desire to magnify and 
rejoice in Him. 

The collection has been made by a Committee of the General Convention whose 
names appear below. Their object has been to obtain a very liberal supply, both of 
words and of music, to meet a wide range of wants and tastes, not only in public wor- 
ship, but in smaller religious gatherings, in homes, and in the social circle. In making 
the collection, entire unanimity in taste and judgment has not been insisted upon. 

While a large proportion of the material here offered is that which has happily 
passed into general use by Christians of all denominations, and constitutes in so far a 
common confession of faith and worship, there are nevertheless a considerable number 
of original contributions which may, in turn, it is hoped, prove to be not unworthy 
additions to the common treasury of Christian song. 

To the collection of Hymns and Tunes in the present New-Church Book of Worship 
and those of the Christian Hymnal and a large number of the Hymns of the English Con- 
ference Collection, the Committee have added selections from the best of the hymnals 
recently published both in this country and in England ; and the many kind favors which 
the Committee have received both from publishers and from authors and composers 
are hereby gratefully acknowledged. Especially do the Committee desire to express 
their indebtedness to the Rev. Charles L. Hutchins, Mr. George C. Stebbins, the Cen- 
tury Company, the Chautauqua Circle, Messrs. Roberts Brothers, Mr. O. B. Brown, and 
Mr. Wm. W. Gilchrist, for the free use of valuable hymns and tunes; and to Messrs. 
Oliver Ditson & Company and the Biglow & Main Company for the use of tunes of 
which they own the copyrights; all of which will be found indicated in the indexes. 

Part X. including music for the Responses, Sanctis, Doxologies and Canticles, 
has been added in response to a strongly-felt need of a larger musical provision for these 
parts of our stated liturgical service.

1 Xow, when the dusky shades of night retreating 

Before the sun's red banner swiftly flee ; 
Now, when the terrors of the dark are fleeting, 
Lord, we lift our thankful hearts to Thee : — 

2 Look from the height of heaven, and send to cheer us 

Thy light and truth, and guide us onward still ; 
Still let Thy mercy, as of old, he near us, 
And lead us safely to Thy holy hill. 

3 So, when that morn of endless light is waking, 

And shades of evil from its splendors flee, 
Safe may we rise, this earthly vale forsaking, 

Through all the long bright day to dwell with Thee. 



4 Be this by Thee, Lord our Saviour, granted, 
Who art alone our Father ever blest ; 
Whose glory by the heaven and earth is chanted. 
Whose name by men and angels is confest.

Morning Hymn. 

1. 



Bartholemon. 




1 Awake, my soul, and with the sun 
Thy daily stage of duty run; 
Shake off dull sloth, and joyful rise 
To pay thy morning sacrifice. 

2 Redeem thy mis-spent time that 's past ; 
Live this day, as if 'twere thy last; 
To improve thy talents take due care ; 
'Gainst the great day thyself prepare. 

3 Let all thy converse be sincere, 

Thy conscience as the noon-day clear; 
Think how the all-seeing God, thy ways 
And all thy secret thoughts surveys. 

4 Wake, and lift up thyself, my heart, 
And with the angels bear thy part, 
Who all night long unwearied sing 
" Glory to Thee, eternal King." 



5 Glory to Thee, who safe hast kept, 
And hast refresh'd me while I slept; 
Grant, Lord, when I from death shall 
I may of endless light partake, [wake, 

6 Lord, I my vows to Thee renew; 
Scatter my sins as morning dew; 
Guard my first spring of tho't and will, 
And with Thyself my spirit fill. 

t Direct, control, suggest this day 
All I design, or do, or say; 
That all my pow'rs, with all their might, 
In Thy sole glory may unite. 

8 Praise God, from whom all blessings 
flow ; 
Praise Him, all creatures here below; 
Praise Him above, angelic host; 
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. 

Amen.

Every morning mercies new 
Fall as fresh as early dew; 
Every morning let us pay 
Tribute with the early day; 
For Thy mercies, Lord, are sure: 
Thy compassion doth endure. 



- 3 Let our prayers each morn prevail, 
That these gifts may never fail; 
And, as we confess the sin 
And the tempter's power within, 
Feed us with the Bread of Life ; 
Fit us for our daily strife. 



2 Still the greatness of Thy love 
Daily would our sins remove; 
Daily, far as east to west, 
Lift the burden from the breast; 
Give unbought to those who pray 
Strength to stand in evil day. 



As the morning light returns, 
As the sun with splendor burns, 
May we lift our hearts to Thee, 
Sun of heaven's radiancy! 
That beneath Thy blessed light 
We may live to serve Thee right. 

Amen

New every morning is Thy love, 
Our wakening and uprising prove ; 
Thro' sleep and darkness safely bro't, 
Restored to life, and power, and tho't.

If on our daily course our mind 
Be set to hallow all we find, 
New treasures still, of countless price 
God will provide for sacrifice. 



2 New mercies, each returning day, 
Hover around us while we pray ;- 
New perils past, new sins forgiven, 
Newtho'tsof God,new hopes of heav'n. 



The trivial round, the common task, 
Will furnish all we need to ask, 
Room to deny ourselves, a road 
To bring us daily nearer God. 



5 Only, Lord, in Thy dear love 
Fit us for perfect rest above ; 
And help us, this and every day, 
To live more nearly as we pray. in.

Now the shades of night are gone ; 



Now the morning light is come : 
Lord, may we be Thine to-day ; 
Drive the shades of sin away. 



Fill our souls with heavenly light ; 
Banish doubt, and clear our sight : 
In Thy service, Lord, to-day, 
May we stand, and watch, and*pray.

Save us from our foes around : 
Going out and coming in, 
Keep us safe from every sim vi.

1 Now that the daylight fills the sky, 
We lift our hearts to God on high : 
That He, in all we do or say 
Would keep us free from harm to-day. 

2 Would guard our hearts and tongues 

from strife, 
From anger's din would hide our life : 
From all ill sights would turn our eyes : 
Would close our ears from vanities. 



Would keep our inmost conscience pure, 
Our souls from folly would secure ; 
Would bid us check the pride of sense 
With due and holy abstinence. 

So we, when this new day is gone, 
And night, in turn, is drawing on, 
With conscience by the world austain'd, 
Shall praise His Name for vict'rv gain'd.

1 Lord, in the morning Thou shalt hear 

My voice ascending high ; 
To Thee will I direct my prayer, 
To Thee lift up mine eye. 

2 Unto Thy house will I resort 

To taste Thy mercies there ; 
I will frequent Thine holy court, 
And worship in Thy fear.

In ways of righteousness ! 
Make every path of duty straight, 
And plain before my face.

1 Now that the sun is gleaming bright, 

Implore we, bending low, 
That Thou, the uncreated Light, 
May guide us as we go. 

2 No sinful word, nor deed. of wrong, 

Nor thoughts that idly rove; 
But simple truth be on our tongue, 
And in our hearts Thy love. 

3 And while the hours in order flow, 

Lord, securely fence 
Our gates, beleaguered by the foe 
The gate of every sense. 



4 The men that love and fear Thy Name 4 And grant that to Thine honor, Lord, 
Shall see their hopes fulfill'd. Our daily toil may tend ; 

Th' Almighty God will compass them, That we begin it at Thy word, 
With favor as a shield, iv. And in Thy favor end. Amen.

1 God of the morning, at whose voice 

The cheerful sun makes haste to rise, 
And like a giant doth rejoice 

To run his journey thro' the skies. 

2 From the fair chambers of the east 

The circuit of his raca begins ; 
And, without weariness or rest, 

Round the whole earth he flies and shines. 

3 0, like the sun, may I fulfil 

Th' appointed duties of the day, 
With ready mind and active will 

March on, and keep my heavenly way ! 

4 But I shall rove and lose the race, 

If God. my Sun, shall disappear, 
And leave me in the world's wide maze 
To follow every wandering star. 

5 Lord ! Thy commands are clean and pure, 

Enlightening our beclouded eyes; 
Thy warnings just, Thy promise sure; 
Thy Gospel makes the simple wise. 

6 Give me Thy counsel for my guide, 

And then receive me to Thy bliss; 
All my desires and hopes beside 

Are faint and cold, compared with this ! Amek

Sun of Righteousness, arise, 

Triumph o'er the shades of night; 
Dayspring from on high, be near; 
Daystar, in my heart appear. 

2 Dark and -cheerless is the morn 

Unaccompanied by Thee; 
Joyless is the day's return 

Till Thy mercy's beams I see, 
Till they inward light impart, 
Glad my eyes, and warm my heart. 

5 Visit then this soul of mine ; 

Pierce the gloom of sin and grief; 
Fill me, Radiancy Divine; 

Scatter all my unbelief; 
More and more Thyself display, 
Shining to the perfect day.

God is in His temple,

Hushed all earthly feeling, 
Every heart to Him be kneeling. 

To His own He is known : 

Gaze with eye adoring, 
Self to God restoring. 

Lo! our God is present, 

To Whom, morn and even, 
Sing the cherubim in heaven. 

Holy, holy, holy ! 

Angel-choirs are singing, 
Where the censers bright are swinging

Humbler voices praising, 
Songs on earth upraising.

In Whom all are living, 

To all things their substance giving !

Let me thus but find Thee, 

Leaving earth behind me. 

Make me simple-hearted, 
Patient, and enduring, 

Safe at rest 'mid earth's alluring. 
Lord, renew my spirit, 
That in truth's uprightness 

I may see Thy glory's brightness. 
So let me, up to Thee 
As the eagle soaring, 

Live but in adoring. 

Lord, come, rest within me, 

All my sins dispelling ; 
Make my soul Thy hallowed dwelling. 

There Thy glorious presence

That I, too, may glorify Thee.

There they behold Thy mercy-seat; 
Where'er they seek Thee, Thou art found, 
And where Thou art is hallowed ground.

To strengthen faith and lighten care ; 
To" teach our faint desires to rise, 

And bring all heaven before our eyes.

Nor short Thine arm, nor deaf Thine ear;

And make our cleansed hearts Thine own. i.

1 In Thy peaceful house of prayer, 

Stronger faith, Lord, we seek ; 
Here we bring each earthly care, 

Thou the strengthening message speak. 
In our greatest trials we, 

Calm, through Thee, the way have trod 
In the smallest may we leel 

Thou art still our Helper-God! 

2 Of Thy presence and Thy love 

We more steadfast feeling need, 
Till the high and holy thought 

Hallow every simplest deed. 
In our work and in our homes 

Christian men we fain would be ;

Noblest place for serving Th^p

IJSTVO CA TION AND PR A YER. 



Webb. 




Sometimes a light surprises 

The Christian while he sings : 
It is the Lord, Who rises 

With healing on His wings. 
When comforts are declining, 

He grants the soul again 
A season of clear shining, 

To cheer it after rain. 

2 In holy contemplation, 

We sweetly then pursue, 
The theme of God's salvation, 

And find it ever new : 
Set free from present sorrow, 

We cheerfully can say, 
" E'en let the unknown morrow 

Bring with it what it may ! 

3 "It can bring with it nothing 

But He will bear us through ; 
Who gives the lilies clothing 

Will clothe His people too ; 
Beneath the spreading -heavens 

Xo creature but is fed, 
And He Who feeds the ravens 

Will give His children bread." 

4 Though vine nor fig-tree neither, 

Their wonted fruit shall bear, 
Though all the field should wither, 
Nor flocks nor herds be there ; 



Yet God the same abiding 

His praise shall tune my voice, 

For, while in Him confiding, 
I cannot but rejoice. 



21 



Go when the morning shineth, 

Go when the noon is bright, 
Go when the eve declineth, 

Go in the hush of night ; 
Go with pure mind and feeling, 

Fling earthly thought away, 
And, in thy closet kneeling, 

Do thou in secret pray. 

Or, if ' tis e'er denied thee 

In solitude to pray, 
Should holy thoughts come o'er thee 

When friends are round thy way, 
E'en then the silent breathing 

Thy spirit raised above, 
Will reach His throne of glory, 

Where dwells eternal love. 

Oh, not a joy or blessing 

With this can we compare, — 
The grace our Father gave us 

To pour our souls in prayer : 
Whene'er thou pin'st in sadness, 

Before His footstool fall ; 
Remember in thy gladness, 

His love, Who gave thee all. (

1 Come, blessed Saviour! Source of light! 

Whose power and grace are unconfined, 
Dispel the gloomy shades of night — 
The thicker darkness of the mind. 

2 To mine illumined eyes, display 

The glorious truths Thy Word reveals; 
Cause me to run the heavenly way, 
Thy book unfold, and loose the seals. 

3 Thine inward teachings make me know, 

The truth of Thy redeeming love, 
The vanity of things below, 

And excellence of thiugs above. 

4 While through this devious maze I stray, 

Spread, like the sun, Thy beams abroad, 
To show the dangers of the way, 

And guide my feeble steps to God. x.

We love the place, God, 
Wherein Thine honor dwells; 

The joy of Thine abode 
All earthly joy excels. 

It is the house of prayer, 
Wherein Thy servants meet; 

And Thou, Lord, art there 
Thy chosen flock to greet. 

We love the Word of Life, 
The Word that tells of peace, 
Agnus Dei. 



Of comfort in the strife, ■ 
And joys that never cease. 

We love to sing below 

For mercies freely given; 
But 0! we long to know 

The triumph-song of Heaven. 

Lord Jesus, give us grace 
On earth to love Thee more, 

In Heaven to see Thy Face, 

And with Thy saints adore. Amen.

1 When the weary seeking rest, 

To Thy goodness flee; 
When the heavy laden cast 

All their load on Thee; 
When the troubled, seeking peace, 

On Thy Name shall call ; 
When the sinner, seeking life, 

At Thy feet shall fall: 
Hear then, in love, Lord, the cry, 
In heaven, Thy dwelling-place on high! 

2 When the worldling, sick at heart, 

Lifts his soul above ; 
When the prodigal looks back 

To his Father's Love; 
When the proud man from his pride 

Stoops to seek Thy face; 
When the burdened brings his guilt 

To Thy throne of grace: 
Hear then, in love, Lord, the cry, 
In heav'n, Thy dwelling-place on high ! 

3 When the stranger asks a home, 

All his toils to end; 
• When the hungry craveth food, 

And the poor a friend; 
When the sailor on the wave 



I i I r i i 



Bows the humble knee ; 
When the soldier on the field 

Lifts his heart to Thee : 
Hear then, in love, Lord, the cry, 
In heav'n, Thy dwelling-place on high! 

When the man of toil and care, 

In the city crowd; 
When the shepherd on the moor 

Names the Name of God; 
When the learned and the high, 

Tired of earthly fame, 
LTpon higher joys intent, 

Name the blessed Name ; 
Hear then, in love, Lord, the cry, 
In heav'n,Thy dwelling-place on high! 

W hen the child, with guileless lip, 

Youth, or maiden fair; 
When the aged, weak and gray, 

Seek Thy face in prayer; 
When Thy waiting, longing church, 

Looking for a home, 
Sendeth up her silent sigh, 

Come, Lord Jesus, come! 
Hear then, in love, O Lord, the cry, 
In heav'n,Tliy dwelling-place on high!

1 Father ! in Thy mysterious presence kneeling, 

Fain would our souls receive Thy kindling love ; 
For we are weak, and need some deep revealing 
Of trust, and strength, and calmness from above. 

% Lord ! we have wandered forth through doubt and sorrow, 
A.nd Thou hast made each step an onward one ; 
And we will trust in each unknown to-morrow; 
Thou wilt sustain us till its work is done. 

3 In the heart's depths, a peace serene and holy 

Lingers ; and when pain seems to have her will, 
Or we despair, oh ! may that peace rise slowly, 
Stronger than agony, and we be still. 

4 Now, Father! now in Thine own presence kneeling, 

Our spirits yearn to feel Thy kindling love ; 
O make us strong ; we need Thy deep revealing 
Of trust, and strength, and calmness from above.

We humbly bow before Thee, 

Thou glorious Lord of all; 
In mercy now draw near us, 
In Thy compassion hear us, 

As on Thy Name we call. 



Thy sun doth shine above us, 
We know that Thou dost love us, 

Thou Light of life Divine; 
May Thy good Spirit cheer us, 
Thy angels e'er be near us, 

May we be wholly Thine. 



We feel our imperfection, 
And ask Thy kind protection, 

From error, sin, and harm; 
Of all good gifts the Giver, 
Thou canst our souls deliver, 

By Thine Almighty arm. 



In all our tribulation, 
In trial and temptation, 

Our hope is but in Thee; 
We do confess "in meekness, 
Our strength is only weakness, 

Thy truth can make us free. 

Amen.

1 Jesus calls us, o'er the tumult 

Of our life's wild, restless sea; 
Day by day His sweet voice soundeth, 

Saying, "Children, follow Me!" 
Jesus calls us — from the worship 

Of the vain world's golden store; 
From each idol that would keep us, — 

Saying, "Children, love Me more!" 



29 



Love divine, all love excelling, 

Joy of heaven, to earth come down, 
Fix in us Thy humble dwelling, 

All Thy faithful mercies crown. 
Jesus, Thou art all compassion, 

Pure, unbounded love Thou art; 
Visit us with Thy salvation, 

Enter every trembling heart. 



2 In our joys and in our sorrows, 
Days of toil and hours of ease, 
Still He calls, in cares and pleasures — 
"Children, love Me more than these!" 
Jesus calls us! in Thy mercy 

Saviour, make us hear Thy call; 

- Bend our hearts to Thy obedience: 

Serve and love Thee best of all! 



Breathe, Lord, Thy holy spirit 

Into every troubled breast; 
Let us all Thy grace inherit, 

Let us find Thy promised rest. 
Take away the love of sinning, 

Take our load of guilt away ; 
End the work of Thy beginning, 

Bring us to eternal day. vin

And for His temple and His throne 
Chooseth the pure in heart.

May ours this blessing be;

My God, is any hour so sweet, 

From blush of morn to evening star, 

As that which calls me to Thy feet, 
The hour of prayer? 

2 Blest is that tranquil hour of morn, 

And blest that solemn hour of eye, 
When, on the wings of pray'r upborne, 
The world I leave. 

3 Then is my strength by Thee renewed; 

Then are my sins by Thee forgiven; 
Then dost Thou cheer my solitude 
With hopes of Heaven. 



4 No words can tell what sweet relief 

Here for my every want I find ; 
What strength for warfare, balm for 
What peace of mind. [grief, 

5 Hushed is each doubt, gone every fear; 

My spirit seems in Heaven to stay ; 
And e'en the penitential tear 
Is wiped away. 

6 Lord, till I reach that blissful shore, 

No privilege so dear should be 
As thus my inmost soul to pour 
Iu prayer to Thee. Amen.

1 In boundless mercy, gracious Lord, appear, 
Darkness dispel, the humble mourner cheer ; 
Vain thoughts remove, melt down the flinty heart, 
Draw every soul to choose the better part. 

2 Thy presence fills the universal space, 
Thy grace appears to all the human race ; 
Oh ! visit us with light and life divine, 
Fill every soul, — for every soul is Thine. 

3 The blessed Jesus is my Lord, my Love : 

He is my King : from Hiin I would not move. 
Hence earthly charms ! far, far from me depart, 
Nor seek to draw from my dear Lord my heart 



4 That uncreated beauty, which has gained 
My ravished heart, has all my glory stained : 
His loveliness my soul has prepossessed, 
And left no room for any other guest, xi.

1 Jesus, our true and only light! 
Illumine those who sit in night; 
Let those afar now hear Thy voice, 
And in Thy fold with us rejoice. 

2 Seek those, Lord, who stray from Thee, 
Let them Thy loving guidance see; 

Thy peace to contrite hearts be given, 
That they be drawn to Thee and heaven. 

3 Shine on the darkened and the cold, 
Recall the wanderers from Thy fold; 
Unite those now who walk apart, 
Confirm the weak and doubting heart. 

4 So they, with us, may evermore 

Such grace with wondering thanks adore, 

And endless praise to Thee be given, 

By all Thy Church in earth and heaven, n.

1 Lord of our life, and God of our salvation, 
Star of our night, and hope of every nation, 
Hear and receive Thy Church's supplication, 

Lord God Almighty. 

2 Lord, Thou canst help when earthly armor faileth, 
Lord, Thou canst save when deadly sin assaileth, 
Lord, o'er Thy Rock nor death nor hell prevaileth, 

Grant us Thy peace, Lord. 

3 Grant us Thy help till foes are backward driven, 
Grant them Thy truth, that they may be forgiven, 
Grant peace on earth, and, after we have striven, 

Peace in Thy heaven.

Behold Thy flock assembled here! 
On Thy great Xame alone we call, 
In humble love and holy fear.

And shed around Thv beams of

And raise our hearts to things above !

Like grateful incense, rise on high! 
Here may we lose our worldly cares, 
And find Thy soothing presence nigh !

The truths that lead to endless 
peace ! 
Here may we feel affections kind, 
And love and charity increase! i.

Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see, 

Only Thou art holy: there is none beside Thee 
Perfect in power, in love, and purity.

See Him to thy help come down, 

The Excellence Divine.

To succour and defend: 
Thee, the eternal God sustains, 

Thy Maker and thy Friend. 
Israel, what hast thou to dread, 

Safe from all impending harms ? 
Round thee and beneath, are spread 

The everlasting arms. 



In a land of corn and wine 

Thy lot shall be below; 
Comforts shall with blessings join, 

And milk and honey flow. 
Jacob's well shall ne'er be dry: 

Gracious dew shall htaven distil; 
Joy descending from on high, 

Each humble heart shall fill. 

Blest, Israel, blest art thou! 

What people is like thee ? 
Saved and kept by Jesus now 

Thou art and still shalt be. 
Jesus is thy sevenfold shield: 

Jesus is thy flaming sword: 
Earth, and hell,* aud sin shall yield 

To His almighty Word.

Thy Word reflects the glorious view, 
That we may share the vision too. 

3 In every work Thy hands have made, 
Thy power and wisdom are displayed, 
But 0! what glories all divine 
From Thee, Incarnate Saviour, shine!

Fill my glad heart with joy and praise; 
Cheered by Thy glowing beams I prove 
The warmth of Thy paternal love. n.

He will make His truth victorious 
Sin and death shall ne'er prevail. 

Praise the God of our salvation ; 

Hosts on high His power proclaim 
Heaven and earth and all creation 

Praise and magnify His Name 



IX. 



Mehul. 




1 Jesus shall reign where'er the sun 
Doth His successive journeys run; 
His kingdom spread from shore to 

shore, 
Till moons shall wax and wane no more. 

2 To Him shall endless prayer be made, 
And endless praises crown His head; 
His name like sweet perfume shall rise 
With every morning sacrifice. 



3 People and realms of every tongue 
Dwell on His love with sweetest song ; 
And infant voices shall proclaim 
Their early blessings on His Name. 

4 Let every creature rise and bring 
Peculiar honors to our King; 
Angels descend with songs again, 
And earth repeat the loud Amen, il

Through their glorious orbs of light, 
In that glad and golden language 

Speaking to us day and night

In that message from above; 
With ten thousand thousand voices, 

Telling back from hill and grove,

God is might, and God is love! 



With these anthems of creation, 
Mingling in harmonious strife,

To the world with blessings rife,

God is love and God is life! 

In His love divine He sought us 
Wandering from His holy way, 

Gifts of endless life He brought us; 
Then let all our future days 
||:Tell this story;: || '

With songs and honors sounding loud, 

Address the Lord on high; 
Over the heavens He spreads His 
cloud, 

And waters vail the sky. 
He sends His showers of blessings down 

To cheer the plains below; 
He makes the grass the mountains 
crown, 

And corn in valleys grow. 

His steady counsels change the face 

Of the declining year; 
He bids the suu cut short his race, 

And wintry days appear. 
His hoary frost, His fleecy snow, 

Descend and clothe the ground; 
The liquid streams forbear to flow, 

In icy fetters bound. 
He sends His word and melts the snow, 

The fields no longer mourn; 
He calls the warmer gales to blow, 

And bids the spring return. 



The changing wind, the flying cloud, 

Obey His mighty word: 
With songs and honors sounding loud, 

Praise ye the sovereign Lord. 



64 



Jehovah God! Thy gracious power 

On every hand we see; 
Oh, may the blessings of each hour 

Lead all our thoughts to Thee. 
Thy power is in the ocean deeps, 

And reaches to the skies; 
Thine eye of mercy never sleeps, 

Thy goodness never dies. 

From morn till noon, till latest eve, 

Thy hand God we see; 
And all the blessings we receive, 

Ceaseless propeed from Thee. 
In all the varying scenes of time, 

On Thee our hopes depend; 
In every age, in every clime, 

Our Father and our Friend.

Thon art the mighty King of kings, 

The Lord of lords most high:

Thy servants shall not die. 
Through Thee we shall the victory gain, 

Though hosts of hell oppose: 
Thou art our God ; and Thon wilt reign, 

And conquer all our foes. 



We trust not in our bow or sword ; 

For weakness is our power: 
In Thee we trust, Almighty Lord, 

Through every dangerous hour. 
To Thee we look, Thou God of love, 

Thy holy name adore: 
Oh, may we rise to heaven above, 

To love and praise Thee more.

We on earth fall down before Thee, 

And with rapture raise

And when the soul hath grasped Thee right, 
How fast the dreary shadows melt

A glory o'er the world I'll see, 
And paradise returns to earth, 
And blooms again for us in Thee.

Redeemer from the bonds of sin,

At Thy feet, our God and Father, 

Who hast blest us all our days 
We with grateful hearts would gather, 

And begin the year with praise — 
Praise for light so brightly shining 

On our steps from heaven above ; 
Praise for mercies daily twining 

Round us golden cords of love. 

Jesus, for Thy love most tender 
Here on earth for sinners shown, 

We would praise Thee and surrender 
All our hearts to be Thine own. 



With Thy Word's true Light provided, 
We upon our way will go, 

Sure of being safely guided, 
Guarded well from every foe. 

Every day will be the brighter, 

When Thy gracious face we see ; 
Every burden will be lighter, 

When we know it comes from Thee. 
Spread Thy love's broad banner o'er us, 

Give us strength to serve and wait, 
Till Thy glory breaks before us, 

Through the city's open gate. vin.

God is love : His mercy brightens 

All the paths in which we rove ; 
Joy He gives and woe He lightens 

God is light and God is love. 
Death and change are busy ever 

Man decays and ages move ; 
But His mercy waneth never ; 

God is light and God is love. 



E'en the hour that darkest seemeth 

Will His changeless goodness prove; 
Through the gloom His brightness 
streameth ; 

God is light and God is love.

Hope and comfort from above, 
Every where His glory shineth :

Eternal source of every joy ! 
Well may Thy praise our lips employ, 
While in Thy temple we appear: 
Thy goodness crowns the

And Summer's rays with vigour shine, 
To raise the corn, and cheer the vine.

Thro' all our coasts, redundant stores: 
E'en Winter, softened by Thy care, 
A face of horror cannot wear.

Demand successive songs of praise: 
Our grateful homage shall be paid, 
With opening light, and evening shade.

While here our songs to Thee shall rise, 
And join the chorus of the skies, n.

1 The dawn of God's own Sabbath 

Breaks o'er the earth again, 
As some sweet summer morning 

Succeeds a night of pain, 
It comes as cooling showers 

To some exhausted land, 
As shade of clustered palm-trees 

'Mid weary waste of sand. 

2 day, when earthly sorrow 

Is merged in heavenly joy, 
And trial changed to blessing 
That foes may not destroy; 



When want is turned to fullness, 

And weariness to rest, 
And pain to wondrous rapture, 

Upon the Saviour's breast! 

Grant, Lord, our gracious Saviour! 

That we may evermore, 
In Thy most holy presence, 

Thy sacred Name adore! 
O bless this peaceful Sabbath, 

Within those temple walls; 
Type of the stainless worship 

In Zion's golden halls! Amen.

Our hearts exult to see, 
And with devotion burning, 

Ascend, God, to Thee! 
To-day with purest pleasure, 

Our thoughts from earth withdraw; 
We search for heavenly treasure, 

We learn Thy holy law.

Lord of the Sabbath day; 
Each voice in gladness raises 

Its loudest, sweetest lay! 
Thy richest mercies sharing, 

Inspire us with Thy love, 
By grace our souls preparing 

For nobler praise above.

1 O day of rest and gladness, 

O day of joy and light, 
< ) balm of care and sadness, 

Most beautiful, most bright! 
On thee the high and lowly. 

Before the eternal throne 
Sing Holy, holy, holy! 

To Jesus, Lord alone. 

2 On thee at the creation, 

The light had first its birth; 
On thee for our salvation 

Christ rose from depths of earth; 
On thee our Lord victorious 

The Spirit sent from heaven : 
And thus on thee most glorious 

A triple light was given. 

3 Thou art a cooling fountain 

In life's dry dreary sand; 
From thee, like Pisgah's mountain, 
We view our promised land; 



See also" Gladness/ 1 No. 85. 



A day of sweet reflection, 

A day of holy love, 
A day of resurrection 

From earth to things above. 

4 To-day on weary nations 

The heavenly manna falls, 
To holy convocations 

The silver trumpet calls, 
Where gospel-light is glowing 

With pure and radiant beams, 
And living water flowing 

With soul-refreshing streams. 

5 New graces ever gaining 

From this our day of rest, 
We reach the rest remaining 

To spirits of the blest. 
To thee, O Lord! be praises, 

For every good begun; 
The church her voice upraises 

To thee, blest Lord! alone.

Be with us through this day: 

Oh, help us all to hear Thy Word, 
Its precepts to obey. 

As we draw- near Thy mercy-seat, 
In c Hifidence and prayer: 

And lay our burdens at Thy feet, 
Lord, receive us here. 



With humble trust and thankfulness, 
We come before Thy face: 

Thy love, Lord, make known to us, 
And Thy redeeming grace. 

Help us our sins to put away, 

And earnest heed to give 
To all Thy Word of truth shall say, 

That we may do and live. iv.

Falls the soft refreshing dew,

All our weary souls renew;

May Thy love with tender glow, 

All our coldness melt away, 

Warm and cheer us forth to go. 

Gladly serve Thee and obey 
All the day!

Never leave us nor forsake! 

Keep us ever at Thy side 

Till the eternal morning break, 

Moving on to Zion's hill, 
Homeward still! 



Lead us all our days and years 
In Thy strait and narrow way; 

Lead us through the vaie of tears 
To the land of perfect day, 

Where Thy people, fully blest, 
Safely rest!

What heavenly peace and transport fill my breast! 
When Jesus, God of grace in love descends, 
And kindly holds communion with His friends. 

Let earth and all its vanities be gone, 
Move from my sight, and leave my soul alone!

And to imnfortal beauties turn my eyes.

And on my Saviour's glories fix my eyes;

We are gathered all to hear Thee; 

Let our hearts and souls be stirr'd 
Now to seek and love and fear Thee ; 

By Thy teachings sweet and holy, 

Drawn from earth, to love Thee solely. 



All our knowledge, sense, and sight 
Lie in deepest darkness shrouded, 

Till Thy Spirit breaks outright 

With the beams of truth unclouded; 

Thou alone, Lord, canst win us, 

Thou must work all "rood within us.

1 As pants the wearied hart for cooling springs, 

That sinks exhausted in the summer's chase, 
So pants my soul for Thee, great King of kings, 
So thirsts to reach Thy sacred dwelling-place. 

2 Why throb, my heart ? why sink, my saddening soul ? 

Why droop to earth, with various woes oppressed? 
My years shall yet in blissful circles roll, 
And peace be yet an inmate of this breast. 

3 Lord, Thy sure mercies, ever in my sight, 

My heart shall gladden through the saddest day; 
And midst the dark and gloomy shades of night, 
To Thee, my God, I '11 tune the grateful lay. 

4 Why faint, my soul ? why doubt Jehovah's aid ? 

Thy God the God of mercy still shall prove; 
Within His courts thy thanks shall yet be paid — 
Unquestioned be His faithfulness and love ! xi.

Lord, before Thy throne we bend; 
Lord, to Thee our prayers ascend; 
Servants to our Master true, 
We would yield Thee homage due; 
Unto Thee our thanks we give 
In whose life alone we live; 
Children, to our God we fly: 
Gracious Father, hear our cry! 

From the heavens, Thy dwelling place, 
Grant Thy saving strength and grace; 
In temptation's dangerous hour 
Leave us not beneath its pow'r; 
Keep us safe from vain alarms 
In Thine everlasting arms; 
God, our Saviour, still be nigh, 
Lord of life and victory! 



3 Whilst our earthly path we tread, 
May Thy love our footsteps lead! 
When our journey here is past, 
May we rest with Thee at last! 
Let these earthly Sabbaths prove, 
Foretastes of our joys above; 
While their steps Thy pilgrims bend 
To the rest which knows no end! 

104 

1 Ere another day shall close, 
Ere again we seek repose, 
Lord! our song ascends to Thee; 
At Thy feet we bow the knee. 
For the mercies of the day, 
For this rest upon our way, 
Thanks to Thee alone be given, 
Lord of earth, and King of heaven!

In singleness of heart, 
And met, Lord Jesus, iu Thy name, 
So in Thy name we part.

And still Thy love bestow, 

Till Thou hast made us free indeed,

Be the taught and teacher blessed; 

In our lives and in our hearts, 
Father, be Thy laws impressed.

Light and knowledge from above, 
Charity for all mankind, 

Trusting faith, enduring love. vi.

Peace of God which pas.seth thought! Amen.

1 Saviour, again to Thy dear name we raise 
With one accord our parting hymn of praise; 
We stand to bless Thee ere our worship cease, 
Then, lowly kneeling, wait Thy word of peace. 

2 Grant us Thy peace upon our homeward way; 
With Thee began, with Thee shall end the day; 
Guard Thou the lips from sin, the hearts from shame, 
That in this house have called upon Thy Xaine. 

3 Grant us Thy peace, Lord, through the coming night, 
Turn Thou for us its darkness into light; 

From harm and danger keep Thy children free, 
For dark and light are both alike to Thee. 



4 Grant us Thy peace throughout our earthly life, 
Our balm in sorrow, and our stay in strife: 
Then, when Thy voice shall bid our conflict cease, 
Callus, Lord, to Thine eternal peace. Amen.

The light and darkness are of Thy disposing; 
And 'neath Thy shadow here to rest we yield us; 

For Thou wilt shield .us. 

2 Let evil thoughts and spirits flee before us, 

Till morning cometh, watch, Father! o'er us; 
In soul and body Thou from harm defend us, 
Thine angels send us.

Jesus, Thou source of life, and light, aucl love, 
Thou King of kings, and Lord of lords above, 
Eternal, self-existent, and divine, 
In Thee, ineffable perfections shine: 
On Thy unchanging love our souls depend, 
Almighty Father and Eternal Friend! 
From Thee, great Spring of uncreated might, 
The vast resplendent orbs of glowing light, 
And all created beings take their rise, 
That walk the earth, or dwell above the skies. 
Profusely wide unnumber'd blessings flow; 
Heaven they enrich and gladden earth below. 
In Thy wide grasp, and comprehensive eye, 
Worlds upon worlds, and suns unnumber'd lie; 
Systems enclosed in Thy perception roll, 
Whose all-informing mind directs the whole: 
Led by Thy hand, their certain ways they know, 
Placed in that sight from whence they cannot go. 
Around Thy throne the naming seraphs stand, 
And touch. the golden lyre with trembling hand, 
Transported with the ardors of Thy praise, 
The holy, holy, holy anthem raise. 
To them, responsive, let creation sing 
The omnipresent and almighty King! Amen.

When day's shadows lengthen, 

Jesu, be Thou near; 
Pardon, comfort, strengthen; 

Chase away all fear; 
Love and hope be deepened, 

Faith more strong and clear. 
When the night grows darkest, 

And the stars are pale, 
When the foemen gather 

In life's misty vale, 
Be Thou Sword and Buckler, 
Be Thou Shield and Mail. 



• So shall no fears chill me 

On that unknown shore; 
For in death He conquered, 

And can die no more. 
Thy Hand guards and guides me 

To the City's door. 

Blessed warfare over, 

Endless peace alone, 
Tears no more nor sorrow, 

Neither sigh nor moan, 
But sweet songs of gladness 

Round about the Throne. Amen.

Hail! gladdening Light, of that pure glory poured 

Which is the Love eternal, heavenly blest, 

Holiest of holies, Jesus Christ our Lord! 

Xow are we come to the sun's hour of rest, 

All times are ordered by Thy word alone, 

Therefore the day and night Thy glories own. 

The lights of evening now around us shine; 

We hymn the blest Humanity Divine. 

Worthiest art Thou at all times to be sung, 

By grateful hearts, with undented tongue. 

Thou art the Lord: Giver of life, alone, 

Therefore shall all the worlds Thy glories own. Amen.

And care is light, for Thou hast cared ;

From evil fears and phantasies;

The shadows of the evening hours 

Fall from the darkening sky, 
Upon the fragrance of the flowers 

The dews of evening lie; 
Before Thy throne, O Lord of heaven 

We kneel at close of day; 
Look on Thy children from on high, 

And hear us while we pray. 

The sorrows of Thy servants, Lord, 

Oh, do not Thou despise, 
But let the incense of our prayers 

Before Thy mercy rise; 
The brightness of the coming night 

Upon the darkness rolls; 
With hopes of future glory chase 

The shadows of our souls.

Slowly the rays of daylight fade; 

So fade within our heart 
The hopes in earthly love and joy, 

That one by one depart; 
Slowly the bright stars, one by one, 

Within the heavens shine: — 
Give us, Lord, fresh hopes iu heaven, 

And trust in things divine. 

Let peace, Lord ! Thy peace, O God! 

Upon our souls descend, 
From midnight fears, and perils, Thou 

Our trembling hearts defend: 
Give us a respite from our toil, 

Calm and subdue our woes; 
Through the long day we suffer,Lord, 

Oh, give us now repose!

How kind His precepts are; 
Come, cast your burdens on the Lord, 
And trust His constant care. 

2 His bounty will provide, 

His people safely dwell; 
The hand which bears creation up 
Shall guard His children well. 

3 Why should this anxious load 

Press down your weary mind? 
seek your heavenly Father's throne 
And peace and comfort find.

Unchanged from day to day; 
I'll drop my burden at His feet,

And calls me back to care, 
Each day returning to begin 
With Thee, my God, in prayer. 

3 With Thee, when day is done, 

And evening calms the mind; 
The setting, as the rising, sun 
With Thee my heart would find. 

4 With Thee, in Thee, by faith 

Abiding I would be; 
By day, by night, in life, in death, 
I would be still with Thee. v.

It is not night if Thou be near; 
Oh! may no earth-born cloud arise, 
To hide Thee from Thy servant's eyes.

My wearied eyelids gently steep, 

Be my last thought, how sweet to rest 
With Thy divine protection blest. 

3 Abide with me from morn till eve, 
For without Thee I cannot live; 
Abide with me when night is nigh, 
For without Thee I dare not die. 

4 If some poor wandering child of Thine, 
Have spurned, to-day, the voice divine, 
Now, Lord, the gracious work begin, 
Let him no more lie down in sin. 

5 Come near, and bless us when we wake, 
Ere through the world our way we take; 
Till in the ocean of Thy love, 

We lose ourselves in heaven above, in.

1 Again as evening's shadow falls, 
We gather in these hallowed walls; 
And evening hymn and evening prayer 
Rise mingling on the holy air. 

2 May struggling hearts that seek release, 
Here find the rest of God's own peace; 
And, strengthened here by hymn and prayer; 
Lay down their burden and their care. 

3 God onr Light! to Thee we bow; 
Within all shadows standest Thou; 
Give deeper calm than night can bring; 
Give sweeter songs than life can sing. 

4 Life's tumult we must meet again, 
We cannot at the shrine remain; 
But in the spirit's secret cell 

May hymn and prayer for ever dwell. Amkn.

EVENING. 



Henry Smart. 




The day is gently sinking to a close, 
Fainter and yet more faint the sunlight glows; 
Brightness of the Father's Glory, Thou, 
Eternal Light of Light, be with us now; 
Where Thou art present, darkness cannot be: 
Midnight is glorious noon, O Lord with Thee. 

Our changeful lives are ebbing to an end, 
Onward to darkness and to death we tend; 
O Conqueror of the grave, be Thou our Guide, 
Be Thou our Light in death's dark eventide; 
Then in our mortal hour will be no gloom, 
No sting in death, no terror in the tomb. 

Thou, Who in darkness walking didst appear * 
Upon the waves, and Thy disciples cheer, 
Come, Lord, in lonesome days, when storms assail, 
Awl earthly hopes and human succors fail: 
Wii mi all is dark, may we behold Thee nigh, 
And hear Thy voice, " Fear not, for it is I."

Hail to the Lord's anointed, 

King David's Lord and Son ! 
Hail, in the time appointed, 

His reign on earth begun ! 
He comes to break oppression, 

To set the captive free ; 
To take away transgression, 

And rule in equity. 

He shall come down like showers 

L'pon the fruitful earth ; 
And love, joy, hope, like flowers, 

Spring in His path to birth : 
Before Him on the mountains 

Shall peace, the herald, go ; 
And righteousness, in fountains, 

From hill to vallev flow. 



Kings shall fall down before Him, 

And gold and incense bring ; 
All nations shall adore Him, 

His praise all people sing : 
With offerings of devotion, 

Ships from the isles shall meet 
To pour the wealth of* ocean 

In tribute at His feet. 

To Him shall prayer unceasing, 

And daily vows ascend ; 
His kiugdom still increasing, 

A kingdom without end : 
The mountain dews shall nourish 

A seed in weakness sown, 
Whose fruit shall spread and flourish, 

And shake like Lebanon. 



O'er every foe victorious, 

He on His throne shall rest, 
From age to age more glorious, 

All-blessing and all blest ; 
The tide of time shall never 

His covenant remove ; 
His Xame shall stand for ever, 

His changeless Xame of love.

Prepare the way! Jehovah | God appears! 
The Saviour comes, by prophets | long foretold ; 
The deaf shall hear Him, and the | blind behold. 

2 Lo! from the stem of Jesse springs a rod, 
His name Immanuel, the Mighty God, 
The Everlastiug Father, Prince of Peace, 
Whose sacred government shall still increase. 

3 Justice and judgment shall His throne defend, 
And peace with white-robed innocence descend; 
The Lord of Hosts shall o'er His foes prevail, 
And crime shall cease, and falsehood's empire fail. 

4 As the good shepherd's care his flock directs, 
By day o'ersees them and by night protects; 
So shall mankind His guardian care engage, 
The promised Father of an endless age. 

5 See a long train fair Salem's courts adorn! 
See future sons and daughters, yet unborn, 
In crowding ranks on every side arise, 
Receiving life, preparing for the skies!

In strains of holy joy.

Incarnate deigns to be; 
The Mighty girdeth on His sword 

To set His servants free.

Daughter of Zion, rise 
To meet thy lowly King; 

Nor let thy faithless heart despise 
The peace He comes to bring.

The old man all be put away, 
The new man all put on. v.

Behold the Saviour come, 
To ransom souls from endless night 

And bring the wand'rers home. 
He calls us to His dear embrace 

From misery and despair, 
Bids us receive His wondrous grace, 

And seek salvation there. 



We come, Emmanuel, at Thy call, 
Believe Thy glad'ning Word, 

Renounce our sins, ourselves, our all, 
And glory in our Lord. 

Salvation to Messiah's name 
With grateful hearts we sing, 

And join our voices to proclaim 
Our Saviour and our King.

For such unfathomed love;

Sleepers, wake, a voice is calling, 

It is the watchman's voice upon thy walls, 

city of Jerusalem! 
Lo! he cries the hour of midnight, 
The voice is gone out into all the world, — 

Where are ye, Servants of the Lord! 
For lo! the Bridegroom comes; 
Arise and take your lamps ! Alleluia ! 
Awake, His kingdom is at hand; 
Go forth, go forth to meet your Lord! 



loo EASTER. 

Up, ye Christians, join in singing, 
And praises to our Saviour bringing, 

For risen is the Conqueror. 
Lo! His march is now undoubted, 
And all the powers of death are routed; 

Lo! open lies the sepulchre. 
fair and glorious beam! 
joy in fullest stream! Alleluia! 
With hero-might He wins the fight, 
And scatters all the hosts of night. 



Id* ASCENSION. 

Jesus, Lord, our Captain glorious! 
O'er sin, and death, and hell victorious, 

Wisdom and might to Thee belong. 
We confess, proclaim, adore Thee, 
We bow the knee, we fall before Thee; 

Thy love henceforth shall be our song. 
The cross meanwhile we bear, 
The crown ere long to wear. Alleluia ! 
Thy reign extend, world without end, 
Let praise from all to Thee ascend J

With mercy beaming from afar. 

The host of heaven rejoices!

With praise, ye mortals, fill the sky! 

For this His incarnation!

Ride on, ride on, great Conqueror, 
Till all know Thy salvation! 
Amen, amen! 
Alleluia, Alleluia! 

Praise be given 
Evermore, by earth and heaven. 



Though circled by the hosts on high, 
He deigned to cast a pitying eye 

Upon His helpless creature: 
The whole creation's Head and Lord, 
By highest seraphim adored, 

Assumed our very nature:

My soul puts off her sadness

For this dear guest make room.

And bids you weep no more.

In Satan's bondage held; 
The gates of brass before Him burst, 
The iron fetters yield.

And bowed the heavens most high; 

And underneath His feet He cast 
The darkness of the sky. 

On Cherub and on Cherubim 

Full royally He rode; 
And ou the. wings of all the winds 

Came flying all abroad. 



He sat serene upon the floods, 

Their fury to restrain ; 
And He, as Sovereign Lord and King, 

For evermore shall reign. 

The Lord will give His people strengti 
Whereby they shall increase; 

And He will bless His chosen flock 
With everlasting peace.

And honor Him alone;

Dost Thou in a manger lie, 

Who hast all created, 
Stretching infant hands on high, 

Saviour long awaited ? 
If a monarch, where Thy state ? 
Where Thy court on Thee to wait ? 

Royal purple, where? 
Here no regal pomp we see; 
Nought but need and penury: 

Why thus cradled here ? 



2 Pitying love for fallen man 

Brought Thee down thus low; 
For a race deep lost in sin, 

Camest Thou to woe. 
By this lowly Birth of Thine 
Thou hast brought to be all mine 

Matchless gifts and free; 
Willingly Thy yoke I take, 
And the sacrifice I make, 

Asked in turn by Thee. 



3 Fervent praise would I to Thee 

Evermore be raising; 
For Thy wondrous love to me 

Thee be ever praising. 
Glory, glory, be for ever 
Unto that most bounteous Giver, 

And that loving Lord! 
Better witness to Thy worth, 
Purer praise than ours on earth, 

Angels' songs afford. Amen.

Which they chant in hymns of joy: -

Of the prophets long foretold.

Make in us Thy humble dwelling, 
All Thy faithful mercies crown

While you kept your flocks by 
Did you see his star in heaven [night? 

Blaze with new-created lisrht ? 
Haste, ye magi, come and worship, 

See the orient star before: 
Bring your presents, gold and spices, 

Blest Arabia's balmy store. 



All ye joyous host of heaven, 

Loudly speak your Saviour's praise 
Saints and angels, in full chorus 

Your seraphic voices raise; 
Alleluia! Alleluia! 

In wide-echoing songs proclaim; 
Heaven and earth, with joy resounding, 

Praise the blest Redeemer's name.

Heard the song and saw the light; 
Took their reeds, and softest strains 
Echo'd through the happy plains. 

4 Mortals, hail the glorious King! 
Richest incense cheerful bring; 
Praise and love Emmanuel's name, 
And His boundless grace proclaim, vi. 

Music on opposite i»kip. 



Sound the loud anthem, to hail the 
blest morning! 
Jesus the Saviour an infant appears; 
Lo! in the east a new day-spring is 
dawning! [in our ears! 

Hark! the glad tidings which sound 
On this auspicious morn 
To us a Child is born; 
Glory to God in the highest be given; 
Hail our Redeemer's birth! 
Good will and peace on earth! 
Manshallagain have union with heav'n. 
Hark ! 'twas the voice of a seraph that 
sounded; [surprise; 

Shepherds of Bethlehem start with 
While, with a radiance of glory sur- 
rounded, [the skies. 
Troops of bright angels descend from 



Now loud the choral strain 

Swells round the happy plain: 
Glory to God in the highest be given! 

Hail our Redeemer's birth! 

Good will and peace on earth! 
Manshallagain have union with heav'n. 

Hail to the Saviour, descending from 

heaven, [never shall cease! 

To build Him a kingdom which 

Child that is born to us, Son that is 

given, [of peace! 

God everlasting, the great Prince 

Praise Him with grateful lays, 

Pour forth the soul in praise! [lone; 

Government rests on His shoulder a- 

In Him the Godhead dwells; 
lie has subdued the hells; 

God the Creator as Jesus is known

Christians! awake, salute the happy morn, 
Whereon the Saviour of mankind was born; 
Rise to adore the mystery of love, 
Which hosts of angels chanted from above; 
With them the joyful tidings first begun 
Of God Incarnate and the Virgin's Son. 

Then to the watchful shepherds it was told, 

Who heard the angelic herald's voice: Behold, 

I bring good tidings of a Saviour's birth, 

To you and all the nations upon earth! 

This day hath Grod fulfilled His promised word; 

This day is born a Saviour, Christ the Lord. 

He spake: and straightway the celestial choir 
In hymns of joy, unknown before, conspire: 
The praises of redeeming love they sang, 
And heaven's whole orb with hallelujahs rang: 
God's highest glory was their anthem still, 
Peace upon earth, and unto men good will! 

To Bethlehem the enlightened shepherds ran, 
To see the wonders God had wrought for man: 
Then to their flocks, still praising God, return. 
While their glad hearts with holy rapture burn: 
To all, the joyful tidings they proclaim, 
The first apostles of the Saviour's Name. 

O may we keep aud ponder in our mind 
God's wondrous love in saving lost mankind! 
Trace we the Babe, who hath retrieved our loss, 
From the poor manger to the bitter cross; 
Tread in His -teps, assisted by His grace, 
Till man's first heavenly state again takes place.

1 Shout the glad tidings, exultingly sing ; 
Jerusalem triumphs, Messiah is King ! 
Sion the marvelous story be telling, 

The Son of the Highest, how lowly His birth ! 
The brightest archangel in glory excelling, 

He stoops to redeem thee, He reigns upon earth. 
Shout the glad tidings, exultingly sing, 
Jerusalem triumphs, Messiah is King ! 

2 Tell how He cometh ; from nation to nation, 

The heart-cheering news let the earth echo round : 
How free to the faithful He offers salvation, 

How His people with joy everlasting are crowned. 
Shout the glad tidings, exultingly sing ; 
Jerusalem triumphs, Messiah is King ! 

3 Mortals, your homage be gratefully bringing, 

And sweet let the gladsome Hosanna arise ; 
X~e angels, the full Alleluia be singing ; 
One chorus resound through the earth aud the skies. 
Shout the glad tiding, exultingly sing ; 
Jerusalem triumphs, Messiah is King ! Amen.

All my thoughts in sorrow's hour; 

Thy arising, Lord, shall still 

All my dread of death's darkpow'r; 

Through my smiles and thro' my tears, 

Still Thy light, Lord, appears. 



Lo! the glory of the Lord 
Hath arisen on us to-day; 

We have seen the light outpoured 
That must surely drive away, 

All things that to night belong — 

All the sad earth's woe and wrong. 



Let me, Lord, in peace depart 

From all evil unto Thee; 
Where Thyself sote brightness art, 

Thou hast kept a place for me; 
In the shining city there, 
Crowns of light Thy saints shall wear

Brightest and best of the sons of the morning, 
Dawn on our darkness, and lend us thine aid; 

Star of the East, the horizon adorning, 
Guide where the infant Redeemer is laid. 

Cold, on His cradle, the dew-drops are shining; 

Low lies His bed with the beasts of the stall; 
Angels adore Him, in slumber reclining, — 

Maker, and Monarch, and Saviour, of all. 
Say, shall we yield Him, in costly devotion, 

Odors of Edom and off 'rings divine? 
Gems of the mountain, and pearls of the ocean, 

Myrrh from the forest and gold from the mine ? 
Vainly we offer each ample oblation; 

Vainly with gifts would His favor secure; 
Richer by far is the heart's adoration; 

Dearer to God are the prayers of the poor.

1 Alone to God on high be praise 

And thankful adoration, 
That we may now, and all our days, 

Rejoice in His salvation. 
Let high in heaven His praises sound, 
Peace and good-will on earth abound, 

All feud and strife be ended. 



2 Ye Christian people, all rejoice, 
Each soul with joy upspringing; 
Pour forth one song with heart and voice, 

With love and gladuess singing. 
Give thanks to God, the Lord above, 
Thanks for His miracle of love; 
In love hath He redeemed us. 



Lord Jesus Christ, alone to Thee 

Be praise and glory given' ; 
Who reignest, God, eternally, 

In all the earth and heaven. 
The Prince of Peace, the incarnate Word, 
The Wonderful, the mighty Lord, 

The Father everlasting.

See them give, in deep devotion, 
Gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

Gold their hearts' best love proclaimeth, 
Myrrh obedience foreshows.

1 The people that in darkness sat 

A glorious light have seen; 
The Light has shined on them who long 
In shades of death have been. 

2 To hail Thee, Sun of Righteousness, 

The gathering nations come; 

They joy as when the reapers bear 

Their harvest treasures home. 

3 For Thou their burden will remove, 

And break the tyrant's rod, 
As in the day when Midian fell 
Before the sword of God. 

4 For unto us a Child is born, 

To us a Son is given, 
And on His Shoulder ever rests 
All power in earth and heaven. 

5 His Name shall be the Prince of Peace, 

The Everlasting Lord, 
The Wonderful, the Counsellor, 
The God by all adored. 

6 His righteous government and power 

Shall over all extend; 
On judgment and on justice based, 
His reign shall have no end. iv.

Did the guiding star behold; 
As with joy they bail'd its light; 
Leading onward, beaming bright; 
So, most gracious- Lord, may we 
Evermore be led to Thee.

To that lowly manger bed; 
There to bend the knee before 
Him whom heaven and earth adore; 
So may we with willing feet 

Ever seek the mercy-seat.

3 As they offered gifts most rare 
At that manger rude and bare; 
So may we with holy joy, 
Pure and free from sin's alloy, 
All our costliest treasures bring, 
Lord ! to Thee our heavenly King. 

4 Holy Jesus! every day 
Keep us in the narrow way; 
And, when earthly things are past, 
Bring our ransomed souls at last 
Where they need no star to guide, 
Where no clouds Thy glory hide. 



5 In the heavenly country bright, 
Need they no created light; 
Thou its Light, its Joy, its Crown, 
Thou its Sun which goes not down, 
There forever may we sing 
Hallelujahs to our King. Amen.

Move on, ye throngs of men! 
Chances and changes come and go ; 

God changeth not! Amen. 

And on the throngs of men, 

On worrying care and strife, 
Sinks down, as if from Angel tongues, 

The word of hope and life. 



2 Down in the darksome ways 

And worrying whirl of life 
Sinks, like a strain of vesper-song, 

The thought of His great strife; 

Who of the Virgin born, 

Made all our chains His own, 
And broke them with His own right arm, 

Nor left us more alone. 



3 Amid the weak, One strong, 

Amid the false, One true, 
Amid all change, One changing not,— 

One hope we ne'er shall rue. 

In whose sight all is now, 

In whose love all is best: 
The things of this world pass away, — 

Come, let us in Him rest. Amen*.

Lo, the pilgrim Magi 

Leave their royal halls, 
And with eager footsteps 

Speed to Bethlehem's walls; 
A a they onward journey, 

Faith, which firmly rests 
Upon Hope unswerving, 

Triumphs in their breasts. 

Oli, what joys ecstatic 

Thrilled each heart, from far, 
When, to guide their footsteps 

Gleamed that Beacon Star; 
O'er that home so holy, 

Pouring down its ray, 
Where the cradled Infant 

With His Mother lay. 

Costly pomp and pageant 

Earthly kings array; 
He, a mightier Monarch, 

Hath a nobler sway; 



Straw may be His pallet, 
Mean His garb may be, 

Yet with power transcendent 
He all hearts can free. 

At His crib they worship, 

Prostrate on the floor; 
And their God, there present, 

In that Babe adore: 
Let us to that Infant, 

As their followers true, 
Hearts with faith o'erflowing 

Give, our tribute due; — 

Holiest Love presenting, 

Gold unto our King; 
To the Man pure bodies, 

Myrrh-like, chastely bring; 
Unto Him, as incense, 

Yow and prayer address; 
So, with meetest off 'rings 

Hi in our God confess. Amen.

1 How sweet the Name of Jesus sounds! 

The Christian's soul it cheers; 
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds, 
And drives away his fears. 

2 It makes the wounded spirit whole, 

And calms the troubled breast: 
'T is manna to the hungry soul, 
And to the weary, rest. 

3 Dear Name! the rock on which I build, 

My shield and hiding place, 
My never-failing treasury, filled 
With boundless stores of grace. 

4 Though weak the effort of my heart, 

And cold my warmest thought, 
Yet, when I see Thee as Thou art, 
I'll praise Thee as I ought. 

5 Till then I would Thy love proclaim 

With every fleeting breath ; 
And may the music of Thy Name 
Refresh my soul in death. 

6 Jesus, Shepherd, Father, Friend, 

My Prophet, Priest, and King, 
My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End! 
Accept the praise I bring.

1 All praise to Thee, Lord, 

Who by Thy mighty power 
Didst manifest Thy glory forth 
In Cana's marriage hour. 

2 Thou speakest: it is done: 

Obedient to Thy word, 
The water reddening into wine 
Proclaims the present Lord. 

3 Blest were the eyes which saw 

That wondrous mystery, 
The great beginning of Thy works, 
That kindled faith in Thee. 

4 And blessed they who know 

Thine unseen Presence true, 
When in the kingdom of Thy grace 
Thou makest all things new. 

5 For by Thy loving hand 

Thy people still are fed; 
Thou art the Cup of blessing, Lord, 
And Thou the Heavenly Bread. 

6 Oh, may that grace be ours, 

In Thee for aye to live, 
And drink of those refreshine; streams 
Which Thou aloue canst give. Amen.

1 My dear Redeemer and my Lord, 
I read ray duty in Thy Word; 
But in Thy life the law appears 
Drawn out in living characters. 

2 Such is Thy truth, and such Thy zeal 
Thy work of mercy to fulfil; 

Such love, and meekness so divine, 
I would transcribe and make them mine. 

3 Cold mountains and the midnight air 
Witnessed the fervor of Thy prayer; 
The desert Thy temptations knew, 
Thy conflict and Thy victory, too. 

4 Be Thou my pattern ; make me bear 
More of Thy gracious image here; 
And at the last, with victory blest, 
Lord, let me find in Thee my rest. Amen.

THE LORD'S LIJF^J ON EARTH.

('. Mai. an. 




We saw Thee not when Thou didst 3 
come 
To this poor world of sin and death, 
Nor e'er beheld Thy cottage-home 

In that despised Nazareth ; 
But we believe Thy footsteps trod 
Its streets and plains, Thou Lamb of 

God. 4 

We did not see Thee lifted high 

Amid that wild and savage crew, 
Nor heard Thy meek, imploring cry, 
" Forgive, they know not what 
they do;" 
Yet we believe the deed was done, 
Which shook the earth and veiled the 
sun. 



We stood not by the empty tomb 
Where late Thy sacred body lay, 

Nor sat within that upper room, 
Nor met Thee in the open way; 

But we believe that angels said, 

"Why seek the living with the 
dead?" 

We did not mark the chosen few, 
When Thou didst through the 
clouds ascend, 
First lift to heaven their wondering 
view, 
Then to the earth all prostrate 
bend; 
Vet we believe their open'd eyes 
Beheld Thy journey to the skies. 



And now that Thou dost reign on high, 
And thence Thy waiting people bless; 

A ray of glory from Thy sky 
Doth shine upon our wilderness; 

And we believe Thy faithful word, 

And trust in our redeeming Lord.

1 Love, how deep! how broad! how 

high ! 
It fills the heart with ecstasy, [take 
That God, th'eternal Word, should 
Our mortal form for mortals' sake. 

2 He sent no angel to our race 
Of higher or of lower place, 

But wore the robe of human frame 
Himself, and to this lost world came. 

3 For us He was baptized, and bore 
His holy fast, and hungered sore; 
For us temptation sharp He knew ; 
For us the tempter overthrew. 



4 For us He prayed, for us He taught, 
For us His daily works He wrought, 
By words, and signs, and actions, thus 
Still seeking not Himself, but us. 

5 For us to wicked men betrayed, 
Scourged, mocked, in purple robe ar- 
rayed, 

He bore the shameful cross and death, 
For us at length gave up His breath. 

7 For us He rose from death again, 
For us He went on high to reign, 
For us He sends His Spirit here 
To guide, to strengthen, and to cheer.

1 At even ere the sun was set, 

The sick, Lord, around Thee lay: 
Oh, in what divers pains they met! 
Oh, with what joy they went away! 

2 Once more 'tis eventide, and we, 

Oppress'd with various ills, draw 

near: 
What if Thy form we cannot see ? 
We know and feel that Thou art 

here. 

3 Saviour Lord, our woes dispel: 

For some are sick, and some are sad, 
And some have never loved Thee well, 
And some have lost the love they 
had; 

4 And some have found the world is vain 

Yet from the world they break not 
free :

And some have friends who give them

Yet have not sought a friend in Thee ; 

5 And none, Lord, have perfect rest, 

For none are wholly free from sin; 
And they, who fain would love Thee 
best, 
Are conscious most of wrong within. 

6 Saviour Lord, Thou too art Man, 

Thou hast been troubled, tempted, 

tried ; [scan 

Thy kind but searching glance can 

The very wounds that shame would 

hide. 

7 Thy touch has still its quick'ning 

power; [fall; 

No word from Thee can fruitless 
Hear in this solemn evening hour, 
And in Thy mercy heal us all.

1 What grace, Lord, and beauty shone 

Around Thy steps below; 
What patient love was seen in all 
Thy life and death of woe. 

2 For, ever on Thy burdened heart 

A weight of sorrow hung; 
Yet no ungentle, murmuring word 
Escaped Thy silent tongue. 

3 Thy foes might hate, despise, revile, 

Thy friends unfaithful prove; 
Unwearied in forgiveness still, 
Thy heart could only love. 

4 Oh, give us hearts to love like Thee! 

Like Thee, O Lord, to grieve 
Far more for others than for all 
The wrongs that we receive. 

5 One with Thyself, may every eye, 

In us, Thy children, see 
The gentleness and grace that spring 
From union, Lord! with Thee. Amen.

On which the Prince of glory died, And gaze upon Thy holy cross,

Come, ye faithful, raise the strain 

Of triumphant gladness ; 
God hath brought His Israel 

Into joy from sadness ; 
Loosed from Pharaoh's bitter yoke 

Jacob's sons and daughters ; 
Led them with unmoistened foot 

Through the Red Sea waters. 

'T is the spring of souls to-day : 

Christ hath burst His prison, 
And from three days' sleep in death 

As the sun hath risen : 
All the winter of our sins, 

Long and dark, is flying 
From His Light, to Whom we give 

Laud and praise undying.

Now the Queen of seasons, bright 

With the Day of splendor, 
With the royal Feast of Feasts, 

Comes its joy to render ; 
Comes to glad Jerusalem, 

Which with true affection 
Welcomes in unwearied strains 

Jesus' resurrection. 

Neither might the gates of death 

Nor the tomb's dark portal, 
Is or the watchers, nor the seal, 

Hold Thee as a .mortal : 
But to-day amidst the Twelve 

Thou didst stand, bestowing 
That Thy peace, which evermore 

Passeth human knowing. Amen.

1 The day of Resurrection! 

Earth, tell it out abroad; 
The Passover of gladness, 

The Passover of God. 
From death to life eternal, 

From earth unto the sky, 
Our Christ hath brought us over, 

With hymns of victory. 

2 Our hearts be pure from evil, 

That we may see aright 
The Lord in rays eternal 

Of resurrection-light; 
And, listening to His accents, 

May hear so calm and plain 
His own "All hail," and hearing 

May raise the victor strain. 

8 Now let the heavens be joyful, 

Aud earth her song begin, 
The round world keep high triumph, 

Aud all that is therein: 
Let all things seen and unseen 

Their notes of gladness blend, 
For Christ the Lord is risen, 

Our Joy that hath no end. Amen.

Angels, roll the rock away ; 
Death, yield up Thy mighty prey: 
See! He rises from the tomb, 
Bright with heaven's immortal bloom. 
'Tis the Saviour! Angels, raise 
Your triumphant songs of praise ; 
Let the world's remotest bound 
Hear the joy-inspiring sound. 



Where, death, is now Thy sting ? 
Over Thee the Lord is King ; 
Where, grave, Thy victory ? 
Christ no more in Thee doth lie. 
Heaven unfolds her portals wide, 
Glorious Hero, through them ride; 
King of Glory, mount Thy throne, 
Heaven and earth are all Thine own. 



O- ye people, lift your eyes, 
H'gh in glory see Him rise; 
Hosts of angels on the road 
Hail and sing th' incarnate God. 
Praise Him, all ye heavenly choirs, 
Praise, and sweep your golden lyres; 
All on earth, in humble strain, 
Sing the mighty Saviour's reign. 



Jesus Christ, our risen Lord, 
Ever be Thy name adored ; 
God and Man! alone in Thee 
Dwells the blessed Trinity : 
Glory, honor, power, and might, 
Be to Thee, Prince of Light, 
Lord of all the heavenly host, 
Father, Son, and "Holy Ghost.

1 " He is risen," " He is risen ;" 

Tell it out with joyful voice : 
He has burst His three days' prison; 

Let the whole wide earth rejoice : 
Death is conquered, man is free, 
Christ has won the victory. 

2 " He is risen," "He is risen ;" 

He hath opened heaven's gate: 
We are loosed from sin's dark prison, 

Called unto a holier state. 
Soon a brighter Easter beam 
On our longing eyes shall stream. 






3 Risen Lord, let all adore Thee, 

Saints on earth and saints in heaven ; 
Every creature bow before Thee, 

Who hast all their being given ; 
Who by grace dost us restore 
Praise to Thee for evermore. A men.

2 The powers of death have done their worst, 
And Jesus hath His foes dispersed; 

Let shouts of praise and joy outburst. Alleluia!

In glorious majesty to reign;

1 To Christ, the Prince of Peace, 

Jesus our Lord most high, 
The Father of the world to come, 
We lift our joyful cry. 

2 Deep iu His heart for us 

The wound of love He bore, 
That love which still He kindles in 
The hearts that Him adore. 

3 Jesu, Saviour blest, 

What else but love divine 

St. Albinus. 



Could Thee constrain to open thus 
That sacred heart of Thine? 

Fount of endless life, 

O Spring of water clear! 
O flame celestial, cleansing all 

Who unto Thee draw near! 

Hide me in Thy dear heart, 

For thither do I fly; 
There seek Thy grace thro' life,in death 

Thine immortality, v. 

J. Gauxtlett.

1 Jesus lives! no longer now 

Can thy terrors, Death, appal us ; 
Jesus lives! by this we know 

Thou, grave, canst not euthral us. 

Alleluia! 

2 Jesus lives! henceforth is death 

But the gate of Life immortal; 
This shall cairn our trembling breath 
When we pass its gloomy portal. 

Alleluia ! 



Jesus lives! for us He died; 

Then, alone to Jesus living, 
Pure in heart may we abide, 

Glory to our Saviour giving. 

Alleluia! 

Jesus lives! our hearts know well 
Xaught from as His love shall sever; 

Life, nor death, nor powers of hell, 
Tear us from His keeping ever. 

Alleluia!

1 Arise, all souls, arise! 
The watch is past; 
A glory breaks above 
The cloud at last. 
There comes a rushing, mighty wind again! 
The breath of God is still the life of men; 
The day ascending fills the waiting skies, 
All souls, arise! 



2 It comes — the breath of God — 
Through all the skies! 
To live — to breathe with Him, 
All souls, arise! 
Open the windows toward the shining East; 
Call in the guests, aud spread a wider feast, 
The Lord pours forth as sacramental wine 
His breath divine!

1 Sing with all the sous of glory, 

Sing the resurrection song! 
Death and sorrow, earth's dark story, 

To the former days belong: 
All around the clouds are breaking, 

Lo! the storms of time do cease, 
In God's likeness, man awaking, 

Knows the everlasting peace. 

2 Oh, what glory, far exceeding 

All that eye has yet perceived! 
Holiest hearts for ages pleading, 

Never that full joy conceived. 
God has promised, and prepares it, 

There on high our welcome waits; 
Every humble spirit shares it, 

Christ has passed the eternal gates. 



3 Life eternal! heaven rejoices, 

Jesus lives who once was dead; 
Join, man, the deathless voices, 

Child of God, lift up thy head! 
Patriarchs from the distant ages, 

Saints all longing for their heaven, 
Prophets, psalmists, seers and sages, 

All behold the glory given. 

4 Life eternal! oh, what wonders 

Crowd on faith ; what joy unknown, 
From the heart all sorrow sunders 

Where the Easter light has shown! 
Oh, to enter that bright portal, 

See that shining firmament, 
Know, in Thee, God immortal, 
" Jesus Christ whom Thou hast sent! "

Who is this that comes in glory, 

With glad songs of jubilee ? 
Lord of battles, God of armies, 

He has gained the victory ; 
He, who on the cross did suffer, 

He, who from the grave arose, 
He has vanquished sin and Satan, 

He by death has spoiled His foes. 



Thou hast raised our human nature. 

On the clouds to Thy right hand; 
There to sit in heavenly places; 

There with Thee in glory stand; 
Jesus reigns, adored by angels; 

God and Man upon the throne; 
Mighty Lord! in Thine ascension, 

We bv faith behold our own. 



Lift us up from earth to heaven, 

Give us wings of faith and love, 
Gales of holy aspirations, 

Wafting us to realms above; 
That, with hearts and minds uplifted, 

We with Thee our Lord may dwell, 
Where Thou art enthroned in glory, 

In the heavenlv citadel. Amen.

How He subdued your mightiest foes, 
Disarmed the powers of death and hell, 
And led them captive when He rose.

From Him the springs of blessing flow: 
Transcendent glories round Him shine, 
And beam through heaven on men below.

Proclaim Him God, and God alone, i.

1 Ruler of the hosts of light, 
Death hath yielded to Thy might; 
And Thy cross doth mark the road 
Which will lead us back to God. 

2 From Thy dwelling-place above, 
From Thy radiant throne of love, 
With Thy look of mercy bless 
Those without Thee comfortless. 



Xow in glory Thou dost reign, 
Yet Thou know'st our grief and pain, 
Thence the promised Spirit send, 
While our prayers to Thee ascend. 

Jesus Christ, ascended Lord, 
Be Thy name o'er all adored. 
Mighty God, alone to Thee 
Everlasting glory be.

Come Thou, come ; 

Sweetest and kindliest, 

Giver of tranquil rest 
Unto the weary soul : 

In all anxiety, 

With power from heaven on high 
Console. 

Come Thou, come ; 
Help in the hour of need, 
Strength of the broken reed, 

Guide of each lonely one ; 
Orphans' and widows' stay, 
Who tread in life's hard way 
Alone.

Come Thou, come ; 
Glorious and shadow-free, 
Star of the stormy sea, 

Light of the tempest-tost ; 
Harbor our souls to save, 
When hope upon the wave 
Islost. 

Come Thou, come ; 
Joy in life's narrow path, 
Hope in the hour of death, 

Come, Blessed Spirit, come : 
Lead Thou us tenderly, 
Till we shall find with Thee 
Our home. Amen.

1 Our blest Redeemer, ere He breathed 

His tender last farewell, 
A Guide, a Comforter, bequeathed 
With us to dwell. 

2 He came in semblance of a Dove 

With sheltering wings outspread, 
The holy balm of peace and love 
On earth to shed. 

3 He came sweet influence to impart, 

A gracious, willing guest, 
While He can find one humble heart 
Wherein to rest.

That checks each thought, that calms 
And speaks of heaven, [each fear, 

And every virtue we possess,

And from Thine eternal home 

Shed the ray of light divine; 
Come, Thou Father of the poor, 
Come, Thou source of all our store, 

Come, within our bosoms shine!

Thou the soul's most welcome Guest, 

Sweet Refreshment here below! 
In our labor rest most sweet, 
Grateful shadow from the heat, 

Solace in the midst of woe! 



3 most blessed Light Divine, 
Shine within these hearts of Thine, 

And our inmost being fill; 
If Thou take Thy grace away, 
Nothing pure in man will stay — 

All our good is turned to ill. 

4 Heal our wounds; our strength renew; 
On our dryness pour Thy dew ; 

Wash the stains of guilt away; 
Bend the stubborn heart and will, 
Melt the frozen, warm the chill, 

Guide the steps that go astray. 



On the faithful, who adore 
And confess Thee, evermore 

In Thy sevenfold gifts descend; 
Give them virtue's sure reward, 
Give them Thy salvation, Lord, 

Give them joys that never end.

Amid our gloom and darkness shine, 
And point our souls above;

Dost stop the sinner's way, 
And bid the mourning soul rejoice, 
Though earthly joys decay ;

Can make the cloud of care, 
And e'en the gloomy vale of death, 
A smile of glory wear;

With love to all our race,

With all Thy quickening powers, 
Kindle a flame of sacred love 
In these cold hearts of ours. 

2 See how we grovel here below, 

Fond of these earthly toys; 
Our souls, how heavily they go 
To reach eternal joys! 

3 In vain we tune our formal songs, 

In vain we strive to rise; 
Hosannas languish on our tongues, 
And our devotion dies. 

4 Blest Lord, and shall we ever live 

At this poor dying rate? 
Our love so faint, so cold to Thee, 
And Thine to us so great! 

5 send Thy Spirit, from above, 

With all Thy quickening powers; 
Make us to feel a Saviour's love, 

And that shall kindle ours. rv. Amen\

Rich in mercy, Jesus reigns. 

Angels own no other King; 
Crown Him, mortals, in your strains, 

While His matchless grace you sing! 
Angels wake their lofty lays, 

Kindled from celestial fires; 
Humbler spirits bid His praise 

Sweetly flow from silver lyres. 

Catch, catch the pleasing strain! 

Gratitude demands the song: 
Jesus builds His Church again; 

Lays lier deep foundations strong. 



Truth divine her walls supports : 
Love has paved her streets of gold: 

See her jasper towers and courts! — 
Gates of pearl that never fold! 

Pilgrims, enter and rejoice! 

Here your Saviour holds His throne: 
'Tis the city of His choice: 

'Tis the Church He calls His own. 
Precious gems, of various hue, 

Brightly shine on every side: 
Come, the splendid glories view! 

Come, and in 'H s courts abide!

Formed thee for His own abode; 
On the rock of ages founded, 

What can shake thy sure repose ? 
With salvation's walls surrounded,

See, the streams of living waters, 

Springing from eternal love, 
Still supply thy sons and daughters, 

And all fear of want remove: 
Who can faint when such a river 

Ever flows our thirst t' assuage ?

And break upon thee in a flood of day. 

See a long race thy spacious courts adorn, 
See future sons and daughters yet unborn, 
In crowding ranks on every side arise, 
Imploring life, impatient for the skies. 

See barbarous nations at thy gates attend, 
Walk iu thy light and in thy temple bend. 
See thy bright altars throng'd with prostrate kings, 
While every land its joyous tribute brings. 

The seas shall waste, earth's monuments decay, 
Rocks fall to dust, and mountains melt away; 
But fix'd His word, His saving power remains; 
Thy realm shall last, thy own Messiah reigns. Amen.

1 Triumphant Zion, lift thy head 
From dust, aud darkness, and the dead ; 
Though humbled long, awake at length, 
Aud gird thee with thy Saviour's strength. 

2 Put all thy beauteous garments on, 
And let thine excellence be known ; 
Decked in the robes of righteousness, 
Thy glories shall the world confess. 



*4 









II 



No more shall foes unclean invade, 
And till thy hallowed walls with dread; 
No more shall sin's insulting host 
Their victory and thy sorrows boast. 

The Lord on high has heard thy prayer ; 
His hand thy ruin shall repair; 
Nor will thy watchful monarch cease 
To guard thee in eternal peace. 11.

The two following verses to besvngofdy at the dedication of a church. 



Come Thou now, and be among us, 
Lord and M aker, while we pray ; 

Let Thy presence fill the temple 
Which we dedicate to-day, 

And Thyself, its consecrator, 
Dwell within its walls alway. 

Grant that all Thy faithful people 
May Thy truer temple be; 

Neither flesh, nor soul, nor spirit, 
Know no other Lord than Thee ; 



But to Thee once dedicated, 
Serve Thee everlastingly. 

Doxolorjy- 

Glory to thy Royal Bridegroom, 

Salem, siug rejoicingly; 
He, thy Lord, thy Light, thy Temple, 

Dwelleth evermore with thee; 
His be blessing and thanksgiving, 

Now and to eternity.

1 Behold the heavenly city stands 

High on a mount in heavenly light, 
With blessings filled from God's right 
hand, 
Walled in with jasper clear and 
bright. 
Wide open stand its pearly gates, 

Inviting all to enter in, 
To tread with joy its golden streets, 
And wisdom's starry crown to win. 



2 But who are they whose happy feet 
On Jesu's hill shall stand secure? 
They in whose mouth is no deceit, 
Whose hands are clean, whose hearts 
are pure. 
These are the blessed who shall be 

Like fruitful trees by living streams. 
And such shall dwell, O Lord, with 
Thee, 
Where Thy eternal sunlight beams. 
Amen.

1 Praise the Rock of onr salvation, 

Laud His Name from zone to zone; 
On that Rock the Church is builded, 

Christ Himself the Corner-stone; 
Vain against our rock-built Sion 

Winds and waters, fire and hail; 
God is in her midst; against her 

Sin and hell shall not prevail. 

•2 Framed of living stones, cemented 
By the Spirit's unity, 
Based on Prophets and Apostles, 

Firm in faith, and stayed on Thee, 
May Thy Church, Lord Incarnate, 

Grow in grace, in peace, in love; 
Emblem of the heavenly Sion, 

The Jerusalem above. 



3 Stands four-square that heavenly City; 

Paved with gold like crystal bright; 
Gates of pearl, and walls of jasper, 

Emerald and chrysolyte. 
Broad and lofty tower its ramparts; 

At its gates twelve angels stand; 
On its walls twelve names are graven, 

Of the Apostles' chosen band. 

4 Where Thou reignest, King of glory, 

Throned in everlasting light. 
Midst Thy saints, no more is needed 

Sun by day, nor moon by n : ght: 
Glad may we those portals enter 

When this earthly life is o'er; 
There to dwell with saints and angels 

Tn Thy Presence evermore. Amen.

Jesu, with Thy church abide, 
Thou her Saviour, Lord, and Guide, 
While on earth her faith is tried: 
We beseech Thee, hear us. 

Arms of love around her throw, 
Shield her safe from every foe, 
Calm her in the time of woe: 
We beseech Thee, hear us. 

Keep her life and doctrine pure, 
Help her, patient to endure, 
Trusting in Thy promise sure: 

We beseech Thee, hear us. 
Be Thou with her all the days, 
May she, safe from error's ways, 
Toil for Thine eternal praise: 

We beseech Thee, hear us. 
May her voice be ever clear, 
Warning of a judgment near, 
Telling of a Saviour dear: 

We beseech Thee, hear us. 
All her ruined works repair, 
Build again Thy temple fair, 
Manifest Thy presence there: 

We beseech Thee, hear us. 



7 All her fettered powers release, 
Bid her strife and ferment cease, 
Grant the heavenly gift of peace : 

We beseech Thee, hear us. 

8 All her questions reconcile, 
Let not Satan's touch defile, 
Let not worldly snares beguile: 

We beseech Thee, hear us. 

9 May she one in doctrine be, 
One in truth and charity, 
Winning all to faith in Thee: 

We beseech Thee, hear us. 

10 May she guide the poor and blind, 
Seek the lost until she find, 

And the broken-hearted bind: 
We beseech Thee, hear us. 

11 Save her love from growing cold, 
Make her watchmen strong and bold, 
Fence her round — Thy peaceful fold: 

We beseech Thee, hear us. 

12 May her priests Thy people feed, 
Shepherds of the -flock indeed, 
Ready, where they call, to lead : 

We beseech Thee,hear us. Amen.

1 The Bridegroom comes; 

Bride of the Lamb, awake! 
The midnight cry is heard; 

Thy sleep forsake. 
The marriage-day 

Has come; lift up Thy head, 
Put on Thy bridal-robe, 

The feast is spread. 

2 Shake off earth's dust, 

And wash Thy weary feet; 
Arise, make haste, go forth, 

The Bridegroom greet. 
Sing the new song! 

Thy triumph has begun; 
Thy tears are wiped away, 

Thy night is done! Amen.

The Church's one foundation, 

Is Jesus Christ her Lord; 
She is His new creation, 

By water and the Word: 
From heaven He came and sought her, 

To be His holy bride, 
With His own life He bought her, 

And for her life He died. 

Elect from every nation, 

Yet one o'er all the earth, 
Her charter of salvation, 

One Lord, one faith, one birth, 
One holy name she blesses, 

Partakes one holy food, 
And to one hope she presses, 

With every grace endued,

Built by Jehovah's hand, 

The holy city see: 
Its happy gates wide open stand: 

To enter all are free. 

One bright, eternal day 

Shall in the city reign, 
Darkness and death are fled away, 

Ne'er to return again.

O Lord, we thankful come, 
Low at Thy footstool humbly wait, 

And make Thy church our home.

'Mid toil and tribulation, 

And tumult of her war, 
She waits the consummation 

Of peace forevermore; 
Till with the vision glorious, 

Her longing eyes are blest; 
And the great Church victorious, 

Shall be the Church at rest. 



Yet she with Thee hath union, 

Saviour, God triune! 
And mystic sweet communion 

With those whose rest is won; 
Oh happy ones and holy! 

Lord! give us grace, that we, 
Like them, the meek and lowly, 

On high may dwell with Thee. 

Amen.

1 From Greenland's icy mountains, 

From India's coral strand, 
Where Afric's sunny fountains 

Roll down their golden sand; 
From many an ancient river, 

From many a palmy plain, 
They call us to deliver 

Their land from error's chain. 

2 What though the spicy breezes 

Blow soft o'er Ceylon's isle; 
Though every prospect pleases, 

And only man is vile: 
In vain with lavish kindness 

The gifts of God are strewn ; 
For him who in his blindness 

Bows down to wood and stone. 

3 Shall we whose souls are lighted 

With wisdom from on high; 
Shall we to men benighted 

The lamp of life deny? 
Salvation, O salvation, 
* The joyful sound proclaim, 
Till each remotest nation 

Has learnt Messiah's name. 

4 Waft, waft, ye winds, His story, 

And you, ye waters, roll, 
Till, like a sea of glory, 

It spreads from pole to pole: 



r 



Until the ransomed nations 

Unite in joyous strain 
To sing of God, their Saviour, 

The everlasting reign! 

226 

1 How beauteous on the mountain?, 

The feet of him that brings, 
Like streams from living fountains, 

Good tidings of good things; 
That publisheth salvation, 

And jubilee release, 
To every tribe and nation, 

God's reign of joy and peace! 

2 Lift up Thy voice, watchman! 

Aud shout, from Zion's towers, 
Thy hallelujah chorus, — 

"The victory shall be ours!" 
The Lord shall build up Zion 

In glory and renown, 
And Jesus, Judah's lion, 

Shall wear His rightful crown. 

3 Break forth in hymns of gladness; 

O waste Jerusalem! 
Let songs, instead of sadness, 

Thy jubilee proclaim; 
The Lord, in strength victorious, 

Upon thy foes hath* trod; 
Behold, earth! the glorious 

Salvation of our God!

How happy are our ears, 
That hear the joyful sound, 

Which kings and prophets waited for.

That see this heavenly light; 
Prophets and priests desired it long, 
But died without the sight.

And deserts learn the joy.

Their Saviour and their God. v.

1 The light pours down from heaven. 

And enters where it may: 
The eyes of all earth's children 

Are cheered with one bright day. 
So let the mind's true sunshine 

Be spread o'er earth as free, 
And fill men's waiting spirits, 

A - the waters fill the sea. 



2 Then let each human spirit 

Enjoy the vision bright; 
The truth which comes from heaven 

Shall spread like heaven's own light; 
Till earth becomes God's temple; 

And every human heart 
Shall join in one great service, 

Each happy in his part.

1 Watchman, tell us of the night, — 

What its signs of promise are ; 
Traveller, o'er yon mountain's height, 

See that glory-beaming star? 
Watchman, does its beauteous ray 

Aught of hope or joy foretell? 
Traveller, yes; it brings the day, — 

Promised day of Israel. 

2 Watchman, tell us of the night: 

Higher yet that star ascends. 
Traveller, blessedness and light, 
Peace and truth, its course portends. 



Watchman, will its beams alone 
Gild the spot that gave them birth? 

Traveller, ages are its own: 

See! it bursts o'er all the earth. 

Watchman, tell us of the night; 

For the morning seems to dawn. 
Traveller, darkness takes its flight, 

Doubt and terror are withdrawn. 
Watchman, let thy wandering cease : 

Hie thee to thy quiet home. 
Traveller, lo! the Prince of Peace, 

Lo! the Saviour God, is come.

1 Is thy cruse of comfort wasting ? rise and share it with another, 

And through all the years of famine it shall serve thee and thy brother: 

2 Love divine will fill thy storehouse, or thy handful still renew; 
Scanty fare for one will often make a royal feast for two. 

3 For the heart grows rich in giving; all its wealth is living grain; 
Seeds, which mildew in the garner, scatter'd, fill with gold the plain. 

4 Is thy burden hard and heavy, do thy steps drag wearily? 

Help to bear thy brother's burden; God will bear both it and thee. 

5 Numb and weary on the mountains, wouldst thou sleep amidst the snow? 
Chafe that frozen form beside thee, and together both shall glow. 

6 Art thou stricken in life's battle? many wouuded round thee moan; 
Lavish on their wounds thy balsams, and that balm shall heal thine own. 

7 Is the heart a well left empty ? none but God its void can fill; 
Nothing but a ceaseless fountain can its ceaseless longings still. 

8 Is the heart a living power? self-entwined, its strength sinks low; 
It can only live in loving, and by serving love will grow. Amen.

1 Word of God incarnate, 

wisdom from on high, 
truth unchanged, unchanging, 

Light of our dark sky, 
We praise Thee for the radiance 

That from the hallow'd page, 
A lantern to our footsteps, 

Shines on from age to age. 

2 The Church from her dear Master 

Received the gift divine, 
And still that light she lifteth 

O'er all the earth to shine. 
It is the golden casket 

Where gems of truth are stored, 
It is the heaven-drawn picture 

Of Christ the living Word. 



It floateth like a banner 

Before Thy host unfurl'd, 
It shineth like a beacon 

Above the darkling world; 
It is the chart and compass 

That o'er life's surging sea, 
Mid mists, and rocks, and quicksands 

Still guide, O Lord, to Thee. 

make" Thy Church, dear Saviour 

A lamp of burnish'd gold, 
To bear before the nations 

Thy true light as of old; 
O teach Thy wandering pilgrims 

By this their path to trace, 
Till, clouds and darkness ended, 

They see Thee face to face. Amur.

1 What glory gilds the sacred page, 

Majestic, like the sun: 
It gives a light to every age; 
It gives, but borrows none. 

2 The power that gave it still supplies 

The gracious light and heat: 
Its truths upon the nations rise; 
They rise, no more to set.

For such a bright display, 
As makes a world of darkness shine 
With beams of heavenly day. 

4 My soul rejoices to pursue 

The steps of Him I love, 
Till glory break upon my view 



In brighter worlds above, iv.

1 Great God, we give Thee praise 

For all Thy wond'rous grace, 
Thy kind and condescending ways 
To our poor fallen race. 

2 Thou hast Thy love revealM 

Beyond what prophets knew; 
Thy Holy Book of truth unseal'd, 
To our astonish'd view. 



3 We wander now no more 

Where darkening errors lead: 
But truth by light divine explore, 
And wonder while we read. 

4 Lord, we adore Thy name 

For light and truth divine! 
From Thee the welcomed mercies came, 
And be the glory Thine!

1 Lord, Thy Word abideth, 
And our footsteps guideth; 
Who its truth believeth 
Light and joy receiveth. 

2 When our foes are near us, 
Then Thy Word doth cheer us, 
Word of consolation, 
Message of salvation. 

3 When the storms are o'er us, 
And dark clouds before us, 
Then its light directeth 
And our way protecteth. 



4 Who can tell the pleasure, 
Who recount the treasure, 
By Thy Word imparted 
To the simple-hearted? 

Word of mercy, giving 
Succor to the living; 
Word of life, supplying 
Comfort to the dying! 

6 Oh that we, discerning 
Its most holy learning, 
Lord, may love and fear Thee, 
Evermore be near Thee!

To purity and peace;

Our souls to heavenly bliss.

The inward, shining Light, 
That reason guides, and gives to faith 
The evidence of sight.

Of every soul that lives; 
And everlasting life, to those 
Who keep His Word, He gives.

At Thy blest feet, in humble love, 
And lowly fear, I fall. iv.

Falls soft on hearts that pine; 

Lord, to Thy garden ne'er refuse 
This heavenly balm of Thine. 

Refreshed by Thee, let every tree 
Bud forth and blossom to Thy praise, 

And bear much fruit in after days. 

Thy Word is like a naming sword, 
A wedge that cleaveth stone; 

Keen as a fire, so burns Thy Word, 
And pierceth flesh and bone. 

send it forth, o'er all the earth, 
To scatter all the night of sin, 

The darkened heart to cleanse and wis. 

Thy Word, Lord, a guiding star, 
On pilgrim hearts doth rise; 

Leads those to Thee who dwell afar, 
And makes the simple wise. 

Let not its light e'er sink in night, 
But still in every spirit shine, 

That none may miss Thy light divine.

Sing of those who spread the treasures 

In the holy Gospels shrined; 
Blessed tidings of salvation, 
Peace on earth their proclamation, 

Love from God to lost mankind. 

See the rivers, four, that gladden 
With their streams the better Eden, 

Planted by our Lord, most dear; 
Christ the fountain, these the waters — 
Drink, Sion's sons and daughters, 

Drink, and find salvation here.

And Thy holy Word possessing,

Unto Thee our voices raising, 
Thee with all Thy ransomed praising,

How precious is the Book Divine, 

By inspiration given; 
Bright as a lamp its doctrines shine, 

To guide our souls to Heaven. 

Its light, descending from above, 
Our gloomy world to cheer, 

Displays a Saviour's boundless love, 
And brings His glories near. 

It shows to man his wandering ways, 
And where his feet have trod; 

And brings to view the matchless grace 
Of a forgiving God. 

It sweetly cheers our drooping hearts, 

In this dark vale of tears; 
Life, light, and joy it still imparts, 

And quells our rising fears. 

This lamp, through all the tedious night 
Of life, shall guide our way, 

Till we behold the clearer light 
Of an Eternal Day. iv. Amen.

Though friends should all fail, and foes all unite, 
Yet one thing secures us, whatever betide, 

The promise assures us, " The Lord will provide."

From them let us learn to trust for our bread:

Tune my heart to grateful lays; 
Streams of mercy never ceasing 
Call for ceaseless songs of praise. 

2 Teach me some melodious measure 

Sung by raptured saints above; 
Fill my soul with sacred pleasure, 
While I sing Thy boundless love. 



3 Thou didst seek me when a stranger, 

Wandering from the fold of God, 
And, to shield my soul from danger, 
Bore Thyself affliction's rod.

Safe through life thus far I've come; 
Safe, Lord, when life is ended, 
Bring me to my heavenly home. ix.

Be my vain wishes stilled: 

And may this consecrated hour, 
With better hopes be filled, [stowed, 

Thy love the power of thought be- 
To Thee my thoughts would soar: 

Thy mercy o'er my life has flowed, 
That mercy I adore. 



In each event of life, how clear, 

Thy ruling hand I see: 
Each blessing to my soul more dear, 

Because conferred by Thee. 
In every joy that crowns my days, 

In every pain I bear, 
My heart shall find delight in praise, 

Or seek relief in prayer. 



When gladness wings my favored hour, 

Thy love my thoughts shall fill: 
Resigned, when storms of sorrow lower, 

My soul shall meet Thy will. 
My lifted eye, without a tear, 

The gathering storm shall see: 
My steadfast heart shall know no fear, 

That heart shall rest on Thee.

In joy and in sorrow, in want and in wealth, 
Thy God, O my soul, has declared unto thee, 
Behold as thy days, so thy succour shall be ! 

2 Fear not! I am with thee! be not dismayed! 
For I am thy God, and will still give thee aid; 

I'll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand, 
Upheld by My faithful omnipotent hand. 

3 Through deep swelling waters thou safely shalt go; 
The waves of tempation shall not overflow; 

For I will be with thee, thy sorrows to bless, 
And turn to rejoicing thy deepest distress. 

4 When through fiery trials thy journey shall lie, 
My grace, all-sufficient, shall be thy supply; 
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design 
Thy dross to consume and thy gold to refine. 

5 How firm a foundation, merciful Lord! 

Is laid for our faith in Thy life-giving Word! 
Thy promise unshaken forever remains: 
Thy wisdom defends us, Thy mercy sustains.

If days to come | be dark or fair, Or that, I may not understand; 

If the sweet summer | brings delight I am content, my God, to know 

Or bitter winter | chills the air. That all my times are in Thy hand. 



2 No thoughts of mine 

Can penetrate the deep design 

That forms, afar, through bud and 
bloom, 
The purple clusters of the vine. 

3 I do not know 

The subtle secret of the snow, 
That hides away the violets 
Till April teaches them to blow. 

4 Enough for me 

Their tender loveliness to see, 

Assured that little things and large 
Fulfil God's purpose equally. 



6 Whatever share 

Of loss or loneliness or care 

Falls to my lot, it cannot be 
More than Thy will for me to bear. 

7 And none the less, 

Whatever sweet thing comes to bless 

And gladden me, Thou art its 
source, 

The sender of my happiness. 

8 Add this to me, 

With other gracious gifts so free, 
That I may never turn my face 
In auy evil hour from Thee; 



9 Nor on the sand 

Of shifting faith and feeling stand; 

But wake and sleep with equal trust, 
Knowing my times are in Thy hand.

J Tis enough that Thou wilt care: 
Why should I the burden bear ? 

As a little child relies 

On a care beyond his own; 

Knows he's neither strong nor wise, 
Fears to stir a step alone, — 

Let me thus with Thee abide, 

As my Father, Guard, and Guide.

1 Since Jesus is my friend, 

And I to Him belong, 
It matters not what foes intend, 
However fierce and strong. 

2 He whispers in my breast 

Sweet words of holy cheer, 
How they who seek in Him their rest 
Shall ever find Him near;— 

3 How He hath built above 

A city fair and new, 
Where eye and heart shall see and prove 
What faith has counted true. 

4 My heart for gladness springs; 

It cannot more be sad; 
For very joy it smiles and sings, — 
In heaven's sunshine glad. v. 

258 

1 The Lord my Shepherd is, 
I shall be well supplied; 
Since He is mine, and I am His, 
What can I want beside? 



2 He leads me to the place 

Where heavenly pasture grows, 
Where living waters gently pass, 
And full salvation flows. 

3 If e'er I go astray, 

He doth my soul reclaim; 
Aud guide me in His own right way, 
For His most holy name. 

4 While He affords His aid, 

I need not yield to fear; [shade, 
Tho' I should walk thro' death's dark 
My Shepherd's with me there. 

5 In spite of all my foes, 

Thou dost my table spread ; 
My cup with blessings overflows, 
And joy exalts my head. 

6 The bounties of Thy love 

Shall crown my future days; 
Nor from Thy house will I remove, 
Nor cease to speak Thy praise, r.

1 My God, whose gracious pity I may claim, 
Calling Thee, Father! sweet, endearing name! 
The Bufferings of this weak and weary frame, 

All, all are known, O Lord, to Thee. 

2 From human eye 't is better to conceal 
Much that I suffer, much I often feel; 

But still the thought doth tranquillize and heal, 
All, all is known, O Lord, to Thee. 

3 Each secret conflict with indwelling sin," 
Each sickening fear I ne'er the prize shall win, 
Each pang from irritation, turmoil, din, 

AH, all are known, Lord, to Thee. 

4 Xay, all by Thee is ordered, chosen, planned; 
Each drop that fills my daily cup, Thy hand 
Prescribes for ills none else can understand: 

All, all is known, Lord, to Thee. 

5 And welcome, precious, can Thy Spirit make 
My little drop of suffering for Thy sake ! 
Father, the cup I drink, the path I take, 

All, all are known, Lord, to Thee! Amen.

Whoso in God alone confideth, 
Whose hope is fixed in Him always, 

He 'neath th' Almighty's wing abideth 
Safe and unmoved in evil days. 

Who trusts in God's unchanging love, 

Builds on a rock that none can move. 



man, cease from thy restless yearning, 
And wait in cheerful hope, content 

To take what His all-wise discerning 
His perfect love to thee has sent. 

No doubt our inmost wants are known 

To Him who calleth us His own. 



He knows when best the joyful hour, 
He sends it as He sees it meet; 

When thou hast proved thy spirit's power, 
And art made free from all deceit, 

Then comes He to thee unaware, 

And makes thee own His loving care.

1 They who on the Lord rely 2 Tain temptation's wily snare; 

Safely dwell, though danger 's nigh: They shall be their Father's care: 

Lo, His sheltering wings are spread Harmless flies the shaft by day, 

O'er each faithful servant's head. Or in darkness wings its way. 

3 When they wake, or when they sleep, 
Angel guards their vigils keep: 
Death and danger may be near; 
Faith and love can never fear. vi.

I bid farewell to every fear: His gracious hand indulgent leads,

My wandering feet restore, 
And guard me with Thy watchful eye, 
And let me rove no more. v.

God moves in a mysterious way 
His wonders to perform; 

He plants His footsteps in the sea, 
And rides upon the storm. 

Judge not the Lord by feeble sense 
But trust Him for His grace; 

Behind a frowning providence 
He hides a smiling face. 



3 His purposes will ripen fast, 

Unfolding every hour: 
The bud may have a bitter taste, 
But sweet will be the flower. 

4 Blind unbelief is sure to err, 

And scan His work in vain; 
God is His own interpreter, 
And He will make it plain, iv

1 King of kings, beneath Thy wings 3 May I proclaim Thy sacred name, 

My soul would still repose; By living, Lord, to Thee! 

My refuge sure, my strength secure, Then shall I rise above the skies, 

Against surrounding foes! And Thy perfections see. 

2 Thy wondrous ways to grateful praise, 4 who can tell what glories dwell, 

Shall move my heart and tongue; Around the eternal throne! 

By hosts above Thy deeds of love, There joys divine, that ne'er decline, 

In joyful notes are sung. Are by the righteous known, iv.

Who spread the heavens and earth

My soul, thy keeper is the Lord, 
The God by heaven and earth adored ; 

Rest safe in Him! His heavenly care 
Defends thy life from every snare. 

O'er thee the tempter has no power; 

And in thy last departing hour, 
Angels shall visit thine abode, 

And bear thee homeward to thy

1 The Lord is my shepherd, no want shall I know: 
I feed in green pastures, safe folded I rest: 

He leadeth my soul where the still waters flow, 
Restores me when wandering, redeems when oppressed. 

2 Through the valley and shadow of death though I stray, 
Since Thou art my guardian, no evil I fear: 

Thy rod shall defend me, Thy staff be my stay; 
No harm can befall, with my comforter near. 

3 In the midst of affliction, my table is spread ; 
With blessings unmeasured my cup runneth o'er; 
With perfume and oil Thou anointest my head: 
Oh, what shall I ask of Thy providence more? 

4 Let goodness and mercy, my bountiful God, 
Still follow my steps, till I meet Thee above: 
I seek, by the path which my forefathers trod 

Through the land of their sojourn, Thy kingdom of love. Amen

As above the darkest storm-cloud 

Shines the sun, serenely bright, 
Waiting to restore to Nature 

All the glory of his light, 
So, behind each cloud of sorrow, 

So, in each affliction, stands, 
Hid, an angel, with a blessing 

From the Father in his hands. 

As without the tempest, pouring 

O'er the earth the welcome rain, 
All were but a fruitless desert, 

Barren sand for ripening grain, 
So if ne'er a cloud of sadness 

Veiled the sunshine of the soul, — 
If affliction's waves were never 

Suffered o'er the heart to roll, — 



3 Love and faith might fail forever 

To bring forth their fruits of peace ; 
Heaven's good seed of truth would 

In a thorny wilderness. [perish 

So, with cloud and storm and tempest 

Grows our earthly summer dim, 
That the rebel heart, our Father 

Thus may will to turn to Him. 

4 And like Israel's tribes we wander 

In the desert waste and drear, 
Hungering, thirsting, faint and weary, 

Month by month and year by year. 
Till (how late!) we learn the lesson, 

Not by bread alone we live, 
But by every word of blessing 

Which the mouth "of God doth give. 

Amen

Whate'er my God ordains is right; 

His will is ever just; 
Howe'er He order now my cause, 
I will be still, and trust.- 
He is my God, 
Though dark my road; 
He holds me that I shall not fall, 
Wherefore to Him I leave it all. 

Whatever my God ordains is right; 

He never will deceive: 
He leads me by the proper path, 
And so to Him I cleave, 
And take content 
What He hath sent: 
His hand can turn my griefs away, 
And patiently I wait His day.

Whate'er my God ordains is right; 

Though I the cup must drink 
That bitter seems to my faint heart, 
I will not fear nor shrink: 
Tears pass away 
With dawn of day: 
Sweet comfort yet shall fill my heart, 
And pain and sorrow shall depart. 

Whate'er my God ordains is right; 

Here will I take my stand: 
Tho' sorrow, need, or death make earth 
For me a desert land: 
My Father's care 
Is round me there: 
He holds me that I shall not fall, 
And so to Him I leave it all. Amen.

1 Thus far the Lord hath led me on, 

Thus far His power prolongs my days: 
And every evening shall make known 

Some fresh memorial of His grace. 
I lay my body down to sleep; 

Peace be the pillow for my head: 
Oh, let Thy holy angels keep 

Their watchful stations round my bed. 

2 Thy love Divine forbids my fear; 

Oh, may Thy presence ne'er depart: 
And in the morning may I hear 

Thy loving-kindness in my heart. 
And when the sleep of death shall come, 

Still may I trust Thy mighty love: 
See heaven's sunshine through the gloom, 

And gladly seek my home above.

1 God is the refuge of His saints 

When storms of sharp distress invade; 
Ere we can offer our complaints, 
Behold Him present with His aid. 

2 There is a stream, whose gentle flow 

Supplies the city of our God: 
Life, love, and joy still gliding through, 
And watering our divine abode. 

3 That sacred stream, Thy holy Word, 

Supports our faith, our fear controls: 
Sweet peace Thy promises afford, 

And give new strength to fainting souls. 

4 Zion enjoys her Saviour's love, 

Secure against a threatening hour; 
Nor can her firm foundation move, 

Built on His truth, and armed with power.

1 My God! permit me not to be 
A stranger to myself and Thee: 
Amidst ten thousand thoughts I rove 
Forgetful of my highest love. 

2 Vouchsafe to me Thy guiding light, 
To read my heart and mind aright; 
My every secret thought explore, 
And call my words and actions o'er. 

3 Why should my soul be bound to earth, 
And thus degrade her heavenly birth ? 
Why should I cleave to things below, 
And from my G od and Saviour go ? 

4 Search, gracious Lord! and try my 

heart, 
And hope and healing peace impart; 
From guilt and error set me free, 
And guide me safe to heaven and 

Thee. n.

1 Return, my roving heart, return, 

And chase earth's shadowy forms no 
more, 
seek thy better needs to learn, 
For higher goods thy God implore. 

2 holy Lord, whose piercing eye 

Distinctly marks each deep recess, 
In these sequestered hours draw nigh, 
And with Thy presence fill the place. 

3 Through all the windings of my heart, 

My search let heavenly wisdom 
guide, 
And still its radiant beams impart, 
Till all be searched and purified 

4 Then, with the visits of Thy love, 

Vouchsafe my inmost soul to cheer, 
Till every grace shall join to prove 
That God has fixed His dwelling 
there, i.

Iu all my vast concerns with Thee, 

In vain my soul would try • 
To shun Thy presence, Lord, or flee ' 

The notice of Thine eye. 
Thine all-surrounding sight surveys 

My rising and my rest : 
My public walks, my private ways, 

The secrets of my breast. 

My thoughts lie open to the Lord, 

Before they 're formed within : 
And ere my lips pronounce the word, 

He knows the sense I mean. 
Oh, wondrous knowledge, deep and high 

Where can a creature hide? 
Within Thy circling arms I lie, 

Enclosed on every side.

1 Lord! Thou hast searched and seen 

me through: [view, 

Thine eye commands, with piercing 
My rising and my resting hours, 
My heart and flesh, with all their pow- 
ers. 

2 My thoughts, before they are my own, 
To God are all distinctly known; 

He knows the words I mean to speak 
Ere from my opening lips they break. 

3 Within Thy circling power I stand; 
On every side I find Thy hand; 



Awake, asleep, at home, abroad, 
Still present with me is my God. 

4 If I should try to shun Thy sight 
Beneath the spreading veil of night, 
One glance from Thee, one piercing 

ray, 
Would kindle darkness into day. 

5 may these thoughts possess my 

breast, 
Where'er I rove, where'er I rest! 
Nor let my weaker p.issions dare 
Consent to sin; for God is there! n.

1 Thou, Lord, by strictest search has 3 

known, 
My rising up and lying down; 
My secret tho'ts are known to Thee, 
Known long before conceived by me. 

2 From Thy all-seeing Spirit, Lord, 
What hiding-place does earth afford? 
Or where can I Thy influence shun, 
Or whither from Thy presence run? 

Windsor. 



The veil of night is no disguise, 
No screen from Thy all-searching eyes ; 
Through midnight shades Thou find'st 
Thy way, 
As in the blazing noon of day. 

4 Search, try, O God, my thoughts 
and heart, 
If mischief lurk in any part; 
Correct me where I go astray, 
And guide me in Thy perfect way. 

Amen.

1 Lord ! when we bend before Thy throne, 

Ami our confessions make, 

Teach us to feel the sins we own, 

And hate them and forsake. 

2 Our broken spirits pitying see, 

True penitence impart; 
And let a healing ray from Thee 
Beam peace into each heart. 



When we disclose our wants in pray'r, 

May we our wills resign, 
And not a thought our bosom share 

Which is not wholly Thine. 

May faith each weak petition fill, 

And waft it to the skies. 
And teach our hearts 'tis goodness still 

That grants it or denies. iv.

My heart within me dies, 
Helpless, and far from all relief, 
To heaven I lift mine eyes. 

2 O lead me to the Rock 

That 's higher than my head ; 
And make the covert of Thy wings 
My shelter and my shade.

Forever I '11 abide: 
Thou art the tower of my defence, 
The refuge where I hide. v. Amen.

Rest for the weary soul? 
'Twere vain the ocean's depths to 
Or pierce to either pole. [sound,

The bliss for which we sigh; 



'T is not the whole of life to live, 
Nor all of death to die. 

3 Beyond this vale of tears 
There is a life above, 
Unmeasured by the flight of years, 
And all that life is love. v. Amen.

O cease, my wandering soul, 
On restless wing to roam; 

All this wide world, to either pole, 
Has not for thee a home. 



2 Behold the ark of God, 

Behold the open door; 
O haste to gain that dear abode, 
And rove, my soul, no more. 

3 There safe thou shalt abide, 

There sweet shall-be thy rest, 
And every longing satisfied, 

With full salvation blest, v. Amen

1 Oh ! for a heart to praise my God, 

A heart from sin set free ; 
A heart that's cleansed with the blood 
Which He has shed for me. 

2 A heart resigned, submissive, meek, 

My dear Redeemer's throne ; 
A V here only Christ is heard to speak, 
Where Jesus reigns alone. 

3 An humble, lowly, contrite heart, 

Believing, true, and clean ; 
Which neither life nor death can part, 
From Him that dwells within. 

4 A heart in every thought renewed, 

And filled with love divine ; 
Perfect, and right, and pure, and good, 
An image, Lord, of Thine. 

o Thy nature, gracious Lord, impart, 
Come quickly from above ; 
Write Thy new name upon my heart, 
Thy new best name of love. Amen.

1 Try us, God ! and search the ground 

Of every evil heart ; 
Whate'er of sin in us is found, 
Oh! bid it all depart. 

2 When to the right or left we stray, 

Pity Thy helpless sheep; 
Bring back our feet into the way, 
And there Thy wanderers keep. 

3 Help us to help each other, Lord, 

Each other's cross to bear; 
Let each his friendly aid afford, 
To soothe his brother's care. 

4 Help us to build each other up, 

Help us ourselves to prove; 
Increase our faith, confirm our hope, 
And perfect us in love. 

5 Complete at length Thy work of grace, 

And take us to Thy rest; 
Beneath the radiance of Thy face, 
To be for ever blest. Amen,

Jesus, Lord of life and glory, 

Bend from heaven Thy gracious ear 

While our waiting souls adore Thee, 
Friend of helpless sinners, hear: 

By Thy mercy, 
deliver us, good Lord. 

From the depths of nature's blindness, 
From the hardening power of sin, 

From all malice and unkindness, 
From the pride that lurks within, 

By Thy mercy, 
O deliver us, good Lord. 

When temptation sorely presses, 
In the day of Satan's power, 
In our times of deep distresses, 



In each dark and trying hour, 

By Thy mercy, 
deliver us, good Lord. 

When the world around is smiling, 
In the time of wealth and ease, 

Earthly joys our hearts beguiling, 
In the day of health and peace, 

By Thy mercy, 
deliver us, good Lord. 

In the weary hours of sickness, 
In the times of grief and pain, 

When we feel our mortal weakness, 
When the creatine's help is vain, 

By Thy mercy, 
O deliver us, good Lord. Amen.

1 As, panting in the sultry beam, 
The hart desires the cooling stream, 
So to Thy presence, Lord, I flee, 
So longs my soul, God, for Thee; 
Athirst to taste Thy living grace, 
And see Thy glory face to face. 

'2 But risiug griefs distress my soul, 
And tears on tears successive roll ; 
For many an evil voice is near 
To chide my woe and mock my fear, 
And silent memory weeps alone 
O'er hours of peace and gladness flown. 



3 For I have walked the happy round 
That 'circles Sion's holy ground, 
And gladly swell'd the choral lays 
That hymn'd my greatRedeemer's praise, 
What time the hallow'd arches rung, 
Responsive to the solemn song. 

4 Ah, why, by passing clouds opprest, 
Should vexing tho'ts distract thy breast? 
Turn, turn to Him, in every pain, 
Whom suppliants never sought in vain; 
Thy strength, in joy's ecstatic day, 
Thy hope, when joy has pass'd away. 

Amen

A calm and heavenly frame; 

A light to shine upon the road 

That leads me to the Lamb.

When first I saw the Lord ? 
Where is the soul-refreshing view 
Of Jesus and His Word ?

How sweet their memory still!' 
But they have left an aching void 
The world can never fill.

And drove Thee from my breast.

Whate'er that idol be, 
Help me to tear it from Thy throne, 
And worship only Thee. iv.

1 How glorious is the hour 

When first our souls awake, 
And thro' Thy Spirit's quick'ning pow'r 

Of the new life partake! 
With richer beauty glows 

The world, before so fair ; 
Her holy light religion throws, 

Reflected everywhere. 

2 Amid repentant tears, 

We feel sweet peace within; 
We know the God of mercy hears, 

And pardons every sin. 
Born of Thy Spirit, Lord, 

Thy Spirit may we share! 
Deep in our hearts inscribe Thy Word, 

And place Thine image there.

My Father bids me come : 

Oh, why do I delay? 
He calls the wandering spirit home, 

And yet from Him I stay. 
Father, the hindrance show, 

Which I have failed to see; 
And let me now consent to know 

What keeps me far from Tbee. 

Searcher of hearts, in mine 

Thy trying power display: 
Into its darkest corners shine, 

Take every veil away. 
In me the hindrance lies: 

The fatal bar remove; 
And let me see, with grateful eyes 

Thy full redeeming love.

I look at heaven and long to enter in, 
But there no evil thing may find a home: 
And yet I hear a voice that bids me "Come." 

2 So vile I am, how dare I hope to stand 
In the pure glory of that holy land? 
Before the whiteness of that throne appear? 

Yet there are hands stretched out to draw me near. 

3 The while I fain would tread the heavenly way, 
Evil is ever with me day by day; 

Yet on mine ears the gracious tidings fall, 
"Confess, repent, thou shalt be loosed from all." 

4 It is the voice of Jesus that I hear, 

His are the hands stretched out to draw me near, 

'T is He that fighteth for me, He alone 

Will guard the way that leadeth to His throne. 

5 'T was He who found me on the deathly wild, 
And made me heir of heaven, the Father's child, 
And day by day, whereby my soul may live, 
Gives me the bread of heaven, and will give. 

6 Naught can I bring, dear Lord, for all I owe, 
Yet let my full heart what it can bestow; 
Like Mary's gift let my devotion prove, 
Forgiven greatly, how I greatly love. Amen,

1 Holy offerings, rich and rare, 
Offerings of praise and prayer, 
Purer life and purpose high, 
Clasped hands, uplifted eye, 
Lowly acts of adoration 

To the God of our salvation — 
On Thine altar laid we leave them: 
Deign, Father, to receive them! 

2 Promises in sorrow made, 
Left, alas! too long unpaid; 
Fervent wishes, earnest thought, 
Never into action wrought — 

Long withheld, we now restore them, 
On Thy holy altar pour them: 
There in trembling faith to leave them : 
Lord perfect them and receive them! 

3 Vows and longings, hopes and fears, 
Broken-hearted sighs and tears, 
Dreams of what we yet might be, 
Could we cling more close to Thee, 
Which, despite of faults and failings, 
Help Thy grace in its prevailings — 
On Thine altar laid we leave them: 
Saviour, listen, and receive them! 



4 Sinful thoughts and willful ways, 
Love of self and human praise, 
Pride of life and lust of eye, 
Worldly pomp and vanity — 
Faults that let and will not leave us, 
Though their staying sorely grieve us, 
Help, oh, help us to outlive them: 
In Thy mercy, Lord, forgive them ! 

5 Brighter joys and tenderer tears, 
Fonder faith, more faithful fears, 
Lowlier penitence for sin, 
More of Thee our souls within; 
Love which, when its life was newer. 
Burnt within us deeper, truer — 
Lost too long, while we deplore them: 
Come, blest Saviour, and restore them ! 

6 To the High and Holy One, 
Reigning on Thy heavenly throne. 
Though our mortal weakness raise 
Offerings of imperfect praise. 

Yet with hearts bowed down and low] v. 
Crying, Holy! Holy! Holy! 
On Thine altar laid we leave them: 
In Thy mercy! Lord, receive them!

1 Jesus, Thou art standing 

Outside the fast-closed door, 
In lowly patience waiting 

To pass the threshold o'er: 
We bear the name of Christians, 

His name and sign we bear, 
O shame, thrice shame upon us, 

To keep Him standing there. 



O Jesus, Thou art knocking; 

And lo, that hand is scarred, 
And thorns Thy brow encircle, 

And tears Thy face have marred. 
love that passeth knowledge, 

So patiently to wait! 
sin that hath no equal, 

So fast to bar the gate! 



3 Jesus, Thou art pleading 

In accents meek and low, 
"I died for you, my children, 

And will ye treat me so?" 
Lord, with shame and sorrow 

We open now the door: 
Dear Saviour, enter, enter, 

And leave us nevermore. Amen.

Lead us, heavenly Father, lead us 
O'er the world's tempestuous sea; 

Guide us, guard us, keep us, feed us, 
For we have no help but Thee; 

Yet possessing every blessing 
If our God our father be. 



Saviour, shed Thy mercy o'er us; 

All our weakness Thou dost know; 
Thou didst tread the earth before us, 

Thou didst feel its keenest woe: 
Lone and dreary, faint and weary, 

Through the desert Thou didst go. 



Spirit of our God, descending, 
Fill our hearts with heavenly joy; 

Love with every feeling blending, 
Pleasures that can never cloy. 

Thus provided, pardoned, guided, 
Nothing can our peace destroy, vii.

Take from me, Lord, I pray, 
Pride and self-love away, 
O let me from this day, 

Be wholly Thine.

Strength to my fainting heart, 

My zeal inspire: 
As Thou hast died for me, 
may my love to Thee, 
Pure, warm and changeless be, 
A liviug fire. 



3 While life's dark maze I tread, 
And griefs around me spread, 

Be Thou my Guide: 
Bid darkness turn to day, 
Wipe sorrow's tears away, 
let me never stray, 

From Thee aside. Amen.

Between the cloud and sea,

Till, sea and desert passed, 

Safe in Thy circling love I find 

My anchorage at lastl iv.

Oh, my spirit longs and faints 
For the converse of Thy saints, 
For the brightness of Thy face,

Happy birds that sing and fly 
Round Thine altars, Most High ; 
Happier souls that find a re^t

Like the wandering dove, that found 
No repose on earth around, 
They can to their ark repair, 
And enjoy it ever there. 



Happy souls ! their praises flow 
Even in this vale of woe ; 
Waters in the desert rise, 
Manna feeds them from the skies : 
On they go from strength to strength, 
Till they reach Thy throne at length, 
At Thy feet adoring fall, 
Who hast led them safe through all. 

Lord, be mine this prize to win ! 
Guide me through a world of sin : 
Keep me by Thy saving grace ; 
Give me at Thy side a place ;

At rest till it find rest in Thee. '

Ah! tear it thence, and reign alone,

Then shall my heart from earth be free, 
When it hath found repose in Thee.

No more, but Thou in me, may live;

Nor let one darling lust survive;

Nothing desire, or seek, but Thee.

To feel Thy power, to hear Thy voice, 
To taste Thy love, be all ray choice.

The healing of my broken heart; 

In strife,my peace; in loss,my gain; 
My smile beneath the cold world's 

frown ; 
In shame, my glory and my crown. 

3 In want, my plentiful supply; 

In weakness, my almighty power; 
In bonds, my perfect liberty; 

My light in evil's darkest hour; 
In grief, my joy unspeakable; 
My life in death, my all in all. Amen

1 Happy soul, secure from harm, 
Guarded by thy Shepherd's arm, 
Who thy quiet can molest? 
Who can violate thy rest? 
Jesus doth thy spirit bear, 

Far removes each anxious care. 

2 Shepherd! with Thy tenderest love, 
. Guide me to the fold above; 

Let me hear Thy gentle voice; 
More and more in Thee rejoice; 
From Thy fulness grace receive ; 
Ever in Thy spirit live. 



Filled by Thee, my cup o'erflows, 
For Thy love no limit knows: 
Guardian angels, ever nigh, 
Lead and draw my soul on high: 
Constant, to my latest end, 
Thou my footsteps wilt attend. 

Jesus! with Thy presence blest, 
Death is life, and labour rest: 
Guide me while I draw my breath; 
Guard me through the gate of death; 
And, at last, O may I stand, 
With the sheep, at Thy right hand. 

Amen

When on my restless, burdened heart 

My sins lie heavily, 
Let Thy salvation peace impart,

If on my face, for Thy dear Name,

If Thou remember me! 
And when Thy love shall call me hence 

Thy brighter world to see, 
Be Thou my haven and defense, 

Good Lord, remember me!

Our hope for years to come, 
Our shelter from the stormy blast, 
And our eternal home: 

2 Beneath the shadow of Thy throne 

Still may we dwell secure; 
Sufficient is Thine arm alone, 
And our defense is sure. 



Before the hills in order stood, 
Or earth received her frame, 

From everlasting Thou art God, 
To endless years the same. 

God, our help in ages past, 
Our hope for years to come; 

Be Thou our guard while troubles last, 
And our eternal home! rv.

1 Thy way, not mine, Lord, 

However dark it be! 
Lead ine by Thine own hand, 
Choose out the path for me. 

2 Smooth let it be or rough, 

It will be still the best; 
Winding or straight, it leads 
Right onward to Thy rest. 

3 The kingdom that I seek 

Is Thine; so let the way 
That leads to it be Thine; 
Else I must surely stray. 

4 Take Thou my cup, and it 

With joy or sorrow fill, 
As best to Thee may seem; 
Choose Thou my good and ill. 

5 Not mine, not mine the choice, 

In things or great or small; 



Be Thou my guide, my strength, 
My wisdom, and my all! 

325 

1 My spirit longs for Thee 

Within my troubled breast, 
Unworthy though I be 
Of so divine a guest. 

2 Of so divine a guest 

Unworthy though I be. 
Yet has my heart no rest 
Unless it come from Thee. 

3 Unless it come from Thee, 

In vain I look around; 
In all that I can see, 
No rest is to be found. 

4 No rest is to be found 

But in Thy blessed love; 

let my wish be crowned, 

And send it from above !

The stronger shall thine arm for service be; 
When thou rememb'rest that thou art but dust, 
Then first awakes a living soul in thee. 

2 When thou canst say, O Lord, Thy will be done, 

Then shall thy arm grow strong for truth and right, 
When thou despairest, thou hast first begun 

To learn from whence the feeble heart hath might. 

3 When thou hast gained a victory o'er a foe, 

Hast prayed in fear for storms to break away, ; 
Then first the peace of angels shalt thou know, 
Shalt feel how sweet is heaven's unclouded day.

To know Thee, blessed Saviour, more and more; 
I can do naught without Thee: Jesu, show Thy face 
Unto Thy servant who would Thee adore. 

3 " Lord, I believe:" the hold of sin is strong, 

And stout its heart to pluck me from Thy love, 
But stronger is Thy grace, oh strengthen and prolong 
The work of faith in me, my doubts remove. 

4 " Lord, I believe: help Thou mine unbelief," — 

Be this my prayer through good report and ill; 
Only to Thee I cling; if long my day or brief, 
Master and Saviour, I will trust Thee still!

Then first true joy shall warm and bless thy heart, 
And heavenly blossoms by thy side awake. 

5 When with unfaltering courage thou hast sought, 

On duty's bit tie-field thy prize to win, 
And, in thy self-forgetfulness hast thought, 
The world too little to be gained by sin ; 

6 Then hast thou first grown master of thyself, 

Thy meaner self hast conquered ; and shalt find, 
That thou hast well disdained the slavish pelf 

Of the base kingdom thou hast left behind. Amen.

When gathering clouds around I view, 
And days are dark, and friends are 
On Him I lean, who, not in vain [few, 
Experienced every human pain: 
He sees my wants, allays my fears, 
And counts and treasures up my tears. 



If vexing thoughts within me rise, 
And, sore dismayed, my spirit dies, 
Still He who once vouchsafed to bear 
Such bitter conflict with despair, 
Shall sweetly soothe, shall gently dry, 
The throbbing heart, the streaming eye. 



If aught should tempt my soul to stray 
From heavenly wisdom's narrow way, 
To fly the good I would pursue, 
Or do the ill I would not do; 
Still He who felt temptation's power 
Shall guard me in that dangerous 
hour. 



And 0, when I have safely past 
Through every conflict but the last, 
Still, still unchanging, watch beside 
My bed of death, for Thou hast died: 
Then point to realms of cloudless day, 
And Avipe the latest tear away. 

Amen.

1 Lord, how happy should we be 
If we could cast our care on Thee ; 

If we from self could rest, 
And feel at heart that One above, 
In perfect wisdom, perfect love, 

Is working for the best. 

2 How far from this our daily life, 
How oft disturbed by anxious strife, 

By sudden wild alarms! 
could we but relinquish all 
Our earthly props, and simply fall 

On Thine almighty arms! 

3 Could we but kneel and cast our load, 
E'en while we pray, upon our God; 

Then rise with lightened cheer, 



Sure that the Father, who is nigh 
To still the famished raven's cry, 
Will hear in that we fear. 

We can not trust Him as we should; 
So chafes weak nature's restless mood 

To cast its peace away; 
But birds and flowerets round us preach, 
All, all the present evil teach 

Sufficient for the day. 

Lord, make these faithless hearts of 
ours [flowers; 

Such lessons learn from birds and 
Make them from self to cease, 

Leave all things to our Father's will, 

And taste — before Him lying still, 
E'en in affliction — peace.

I close my heavy eye, . 

Saviour, ever near! 
I lift my soul on high 

Through all the darkness drear: 
Be Thou my light, I cry, 

Saviour, ever dear! 

I feel Thine arms around, 

Saviour, ever near! 
With Thee let me be found, 

So shall I never fear 
Whatever ill abounds; 

Saviour, ever dear! 

Thine is the day and night, 

Saviour, ever near; 
Thine is the dark and light, 

Be Thou my covert here ; 
shield me with Thy might, 

Saviour, ever dear ! 

And when I come to die, 

Saviour, ever near, 
Receive my parting sigh; 

And in the hour of fear 
Be to my spirit nigh, 

Saviour, ever dear! Amen.

Lord, on Thee alone I stay me, 

Safely hide beneath Thy wiug; 
Death can neither hurt nor slay me, 

Thon dost take away its sting, 
That I may in Thee have part, 
Comfort, strengthen, heal my heart, 
Light, and life, and love bestowing, 
All from Thy free mercy flowing. 



Come, ye Disconsolate. 



Well of life, if Thou art with me, 

Springing deep within my heart, 
.Then whatever hour shall try me, 

I can feel no deadly smart: 
If I hide myself in Thee, 
Not a foe can injure me, 
He shall overcome who hideth 
In Thy love, and there abideth. 

Samuel Webbe. 




339 



Come, ye disconsolate, wheresoe'er ye 

languish: [kneel: 

Come, at the mercy-seat fervently 

Here bring your wounded hearts, here 

tell your anguish: [cannot heal. 

Earth has no sorrow that Heaven 



Joy of the desolate, light of the straying, 

Hope of the penitent, fadeless and 

pure: 

Here speaks the Comforter, tenderly 

saying: [cannot cure. 

Earth has no sorrow that Heaven 



Here see the Bread of Life: see waters flowing 
Forth from the throne of God, pure from- above: 

Come to the feast of love: conic ever knowing 
Earth has no sorrow but heaven can remove.

1 I cannot always trace the way 

Where Thou, Almighty Lord ! dost 
move ; 
But I, in trust, can always say, 
That Thou art love. 

2 When fear her chilling mantle flings 

O'er earth, my soul to heaven above, 
As to her native home upsprings; 
For Thou art love.

I'll check my dread, my doubts re-

Till sin and gloom and doubt re-

Turn into joy all tears, all woes; 
For Thou art love. Amen.

1 As, when the weary traveller gains 

The height of some commanding hill, 
His heart revives, if o'er the plains 
He sees his home, tho' distant still; 

2 Thus when the Christian pilgrim views 

By faith his mansion in the skies, 
The sight his fainting strength renews. 
And wings his speed to reach the 
prize. 



The thought of heaven his spirit cheers; 

No more he grieves for troubles past ; 
Xor any future trial fears- 

So he may safe arrive at last. 
Jesus, on Thee our hopes we stay, 

To lead us on to Thine abode; 
Assured Thy love will far o'erpay 

The hardest labours of the road. n. 

Amen.

When days and nights of anxious

Nor help nor counsel yet have brought;

That we may meet before Thy throne, 
And cry, O faithful God, to Thee, 
For rescue from our misery. 



3 We lift to heaven our heart and eye 
With true contrition's sorest sigh ; 
To all our sins be pity sent, 

And soften all their chastisement;

Once more with joy give thanks to 

Thee, 
And walk obedient to Thy Word, 
And now and ever praise the Lord. * n.

In the hour of trial, 

Jesus, strengthen me; 
Lest by base denial, 

I depart from Thee. 
When Thou see'st me waver, 

With a look recall, 
Xor for fear or favour 

Suffer me to fall. 

With forbidden pleasures 

Would this vain world charm, 
Or its sordid treasures 

Spread to work me harm; 
Bring to my remembrance 

Sad Gethsemane, 
Or in darker semblance 

Cross-crowned Calvary. 



Should Thy mercy send me 

Sorrow, toil, and woe; 
Or should pain attend me 

On my path of woe: 
Grant that 1 may never 

Fail Thy hand to see ; 
Grant that I may ever 

Cast my care on Thee. 

When my lamp low burning 

Sinks in death's last pain; 
Earth to earth returning, 

Dust to dust again; 
On Thy truth relying, 

Through that mortal strife, 
Saviour, take me dying 

To eternal life. Amen.

Of the sad heart that conies to Thee for rest; 

Cares of to-day, and burdens for to-morrow, 
Blessings implored, and sins to be confessed; 

We come before Thee at Thy gracious word, 

And lay them at Thy feet: Thou knowest, Lord. 

Thou knowest all the past: how long and blindly 
On the dark mountains the lost wanderer strayed; 

How the good Shepherd followed, and how kindly 
He bore it home, upon His shoulders laid; 

And healed the bleeding wounds, and soothed the pain, 

And brought back life, and hope, and strength again. 

Thou knowest all the present; each temptation, 
Each toilsome duty, each foreboding fear; 

All to each one assigned of tribulation, 
Or to beloved ones, than self more dear; 

All pensive memories, as we journey on, 

Longings for vanished smiles and voices gone.

Watch and pray.

Mustering their unseen array, 
Wait for thine unguarded hours: 
Watch and pray. 

Gird thy heavenly armour on, 

Wear it ever night and day; 
Ambushed lies the evil one: 

Watch and pray.

Hide within thy heart His word, —

Hung the issues of the day; 
Pray that help may be sent dowu:

On earth, with purest sympathies o'erflowing, 

O Saviour, Thou hast wept, and Thou hast loved; 
And love and sorrow still to Thee may come, 
And find a hiding-place, a rest, a home. 

Therefore we come, Thy gentle call obeying, 
And lay our sins and sorrows at Thy feet; 

On everlasting strength our weakness staying, 
We hear Thy Word, we feel its light and heat; 

Then rising and refreshed, we go our way 

And follow os unto eternal dav. Amen.

Great refuge of the weary soul, 
On Thee, when sorrows rise: 

On Thee, when waves of trouble roll, 
My fainting hope relies. 

To Thee I tell each rising grief, 
For Thou alone canst heal: 

Thy Word can bring a sure relief, 
For every pain I feel. 



gracious God, where shall I flee? 

Thou art my only trust; [Thee, 
And still my soul would cleave to 

Though prostrate in the dust. 
Thy mercy seat is open still. 

There let my soul retreat: 
With humble hope attend Thy will, 

And wait before Thy feet. iv.

Almighty God, I call to Thee, 
By sore temptation shaken. 

Incline Thy gracious ear to me, 
And leave me not forsaken, 

For who that feels the power within, 

Of past remorse and present sin, 
Can stand, Lord, before Thee? 

On Thee alone my stay I place, 
All human help rejecting, 

Relying on Thy sovereign grace, 
Thy sovereign aid expecting, 

I rest upon Thy sacred word: 

Thou wilt repel him not, Lord, 
Who to Thy mercy fleeth.

1 When through the torn sail the wild tempest is streaming, 
When o'er the dark wave the red lightning is gleaming, 
Nor hope lends a ray the poor seaman to cherish, 

We fly to our Saviour: — " Save, Lord, or we perish." 

2 Jesus, once rocked on the breast of the billow, 
Aroused by the shriek of despair from Thy pillow, 
Now seated in glory, the mariner cherish, 

Who cries in his anguish, " Save, Lord, or we perish." 

3 And 0, when the whirlwind of passion is raging, 
When sin in our hearts its wild warfare is waging, 
Then send down Thy grace, Thy redeemed to cherish ; 
Rebuke the destroyer: "Save, Lord, or we perish." *Amen.

1 O hollow, soulless pomp, which decks 

The sordid pageants that pass by, 
While the sad heart with longing 
breaks 
For food which can its needs supply. 

2 Nothing this emptiness can fill [thirst 

But bread of heaven; naught that 
Can quench, but the refreshing rill 
Which 'neath the tree of life doth 
burst. 

3 Hung'ring and thirsting on we wend 

Our dark and solitary way, 
Knowing not where our steps to bend, 
But longing for the dawn of day. 

4 Id storm and weariness we tread 

Our path of sorrow, while around 
False lights their meteor lustre shed, 
Eyes dim with watching to con- 
found. 



For there our everlasting home 

We find, where sighing and distress, 

And night and darkness cannot come; 
But the bright Sun of Righteous- 
ness 

Shall bless us with eternal day, 
All in its noontide light reveal'd, 

For which we now but hope and pray; 
The fount of heav'n's delight un- 
seal'd. 



7 We falter, — fall; an angel's hand 

Lifts us; an angel's voice we hear: 
11 Mercy shall guide you to the land 
Of heav'nly rest — be of good 
cheer." 

8 Our Lord is always near to save 

When least of all we feel His 
pow'r: 
Ev'n the dark midnight of the grave 
He makes a joyful triumph hour. 

Amen.

Maktin Luther. 




365 



A mighty fortress is our God: 
A bulwark never failing: 
Our refuge He amid the flood, 
Of mortal ills prevailing: 
For still our ancient foe, 
Doth seek to work us woe: 
His craft and power are great 
And armed with cruel hate, 
On earth is not His equal. 



By our own might we naught can do: 

To trust it were sure losing, 

For us must fight the Right and True, 

The Man of God's own choosing. 
Dost ask us for His JVame? 
Christ Jesus is the same: 
The Lord, the God of Hosts: 
The only God: vain boasts 

Of others fall before Him. 



God's Word above all earthly powers, 
No thanks to them — abideth. 
The Spirit and the gifts are ours 
Through Him who with us sideth. 

Let goods and kindred go: 

This mortal life also: 

The body they may kill: 

God's truth abideth still: 
His kingdom is forever.

Hourly on my spirit weighs, 
Burdening heart and soul with doubt, 
Darkening all my weary days.

And my heart is calm and still, 
Waiting till Thou send release. 

3 Yea, on Thee, my God, I rest, 

Letting life flow calmly on, 
For I know the last is best, 
When the crown of joy is won. 

4 In Thy might all things I bear, 

In Thy love find bitter sweet, 
And, with all my grief and care, 
Sit in patience at Thy feet. 

5 Let Thy mercy's wings be spread 

O'er me — keep me close to Thee; 
In the peace Thy love doth shed 
Let me dwell eternally. 

6 Be my all; in all I do, 

Let me only seek Thy will; 
Where the heart to Thee is true, 
All is peaceful, calm, and still, vi.

Which heavenly truth imparts; 

Aud all the lore its scholars need, 

Pure eves and Christian hearts.

Within us and around, 
Are pages in that book to show 
How God himself is found.

Is like the Maker's love; 
Wherewith encompassed, great

In peace and order move. 



and 



The moon above, the Church below, 
A wondrous race they run; 

But all their radiance, all their glow. 
Each borrows of its sun. 



5 The Saviour lends tlie light and heat 

That crown His holy hill : 
The saints, like stars, around His seat 
Perform their courses still. 

6 The dew of heaven is like Thy grace, 

It steals in silence down ; 
But where it lights, the favour'd place, 
By richest fruits is known. 

T One name above all glorious names, 
With its ten thousand tODgues, 
The everlasting sea proclaims, 
Echoing angelic songs. 

8 Thou, who hast given me eyes to see 
And love this sight so fair, 
Give me a heart to find out Thee, 
Aud read Thee everywhere.

Longing for Thy gracious word, 

Longing for Thy voice that cheereth;

What hast Thou to say to me? 

Often through my heart is pealing 
Many another voice than Thine; 

Many an unwilled echo stealing 
From the walls of this Thy shrine. 

Let Thy longed-for accents fall ; 

Master, speak! and silence all. 

Master, speak ! I do not doubt Thee, 
Though so tearfully I plead; 

Saviour, Shepherd! oh, without Thee 
Life would be a blank indeed. 

But I long for fuller light, 

Deeper love and clearer sight. 

Speak to me by name, Master,

With a step more firm and free,

In the shadow of the rock!

Knows the weakness of our frame, 
Knows that hand and heart are weary, 

He in all points felt the same. 
He is near to help and bless; 
Be not weary, onward press. 

2 Look to Him, the Lord of Glory, 

Tasting death to win Thy life; 
Gazing on that wondrous story, 

Canst thou falter in the strife? 
Is it not new life to kuow 
That the Lord hath loved thee so? 

3 Look to Him, and faith shall brighten, 

Hope shall soar, and love shall burn, 
Peace once more thy heart shall lighten ; 

Rise, He calleth thee, return! 
Be not weary on thy way; 
Jesus is thy strength and stay.

1 Jesus, Thou Joy of loving hearts, 

Thou Fount of life ! Thou Light of 
men ! 
From the best bliss that earth imparts, 
We turn unfilled to Thee again. 

2 Thy truth unchanged hath ever stood; 

Thou savest those that on Thee call ; 

To them that seek Thee Thou art good, 

To them that find Thee, All in All. 

3 We taste Thee, O Thou Living Bread, 

And long to feast upon Thee still; 



We drink of Thee, the Fountain Head, 
And thirst our souls from Thee to 
fill ! 

4 Our restless spirits yearn for Thee, 

Where'er our changeful lot is cast; 
Glad, when Thy gracious smile we see, 
Blest, when our faith can hold Thee 
fast. 

5 O Jesus, ever with us stay; [bright; 

Make all our moments calm and 
Chase'the dark night of sin away, 
Shed o'er the world Thy holy light! 

11. Amen.

Servant of God, well done; 

Rest from thy loved employ: 
The battle fought, the victory won, 

Enter thy Master's joy. 

Tranquil amidst alarms, 
It found him on the field, 

A veteran slumbering on his arms, 
Beneath his red-cross shield.

1 Dismiss me not Thy service, Lord, 

But train me for Thy will ; 
For even I, in fields so broad, 

Some duties may fulfil; 
And I will ask for no reward, 

Except to serve Thee still. 

2 How many serve, how many more 

May to the service come! 
To tend the vines, the grapes to store, 



Thou dost appoint for some: 
Thou hast Thy yonng men at the war, 
Thy little ones at home. 

All works are good, and each is best 

As most it pleases Thee ; 
Each worker pleases when the rest 

He serves in charity; 
And neither man nor work unblest, 

Wilt Thou permit to be.

In all I think, or speak, or do.

In all my works Thy presence find, 
And still regard Thy righteous will.

Whose eyes mine inmost substance see; 
And labour on at Thy command, 
And offer all my works to Thee.

And every moment watch and pray; 
And still to things eternal look, 
And hasten to Thy glorious day. 

5 For Thee, let me still employ 

Whate'er Thy bounteous hand has given; 
And run my course with even joy, 

Then find my rest with Thee in heaven. A&jen.

E'en now it breathes o'er life's dark troubled sea; 
His gracious truth like heavenly dew is falling; 
Hark, hark, my soul! thy Father calls for thee! 
Father of mercy, Father of love! 
Thee would we follow to our blest home above. 

Hark, hark, my soul! from heaven that voice is pleading 
With thee, ere evil days draw darkly near; 

Still by His Word our Father's hand is leading, 
From sin and shame, from sorrow, doubt and fear. 
Father of mercy, etc. 

Hark, hark, my soul! still, still that voice is sounding 
Like music sweet, from some far distant shore, 

While an^el bands, our daily path surrounding, 
Lead God's dear children on forevermore.

The Lord is our Leader, His Word is our stay; 
Tho' suffering, and sorrow, and trial be near, 
The Lord is our Refuge, and whom can we fear ? 

2 He raiseth the fallen, He cheereth the faint; 

The weak, and oppressed — He will hear their complaint; 
The way may be weary, and thorny the road, 
But how can we falter? — our help is in God! 

3 And to His green pastures our footsteps He leads; 
His flock in the desert how kindly He feeds! 

The lambs in His bosom He tenderly bears, 

And brings back the wanderers all safe from the snares. 

4 Though clouds may surround us, our God is our light; 
Though storms rage around us, our God is our might; 
So, faint yet pursuing, still onward we come; 

The Lord is our Leader, and heaven is our home! *

The tempting sounds I hear. 
My foes are ever near me, 

Around me and within;

And shield mv soul from sin.

I found in Him a resting-place, 

And He has made me glad. 

I heard the voice of Jesus say, 

Behold, I freely give 
The living water; thirsty one, 

Stoop down, and drink, and live! 

Vox Dilecti. (Second Tune.) 



:t=toizft^: 



I came to Jesus, and I drank 
Of that life-giving stream; 

My thirst was quenched, my soul re- 
And now I live in Him. [vived, 

I heard the voice of Jesus say, 

I am this dark world's light; 
Look unto me, thy morn shall rise, 

And all thy day be bright! 
I looked to Jesus, and I found 

In Him my Star, my Sun; 
And in that Light of life I'll walk 

Till travelling days are done.

1 O Jesus ever present, 
Shepherd ever kind! 
Thy very Name is music 

To ear and heart and mind; 
It woke my wondering childhood 

To muse on things above; 
It drew my harder manhood 
With cords of mighty love. 
°« How oft to sure destruction 
My feet had goue astray, 
"Wert Thou not, patient Shepherd! 
* The guardian of my way ! 



How 7 oft, in darkness fallen, 

And wounded sore by sin, 
Thy hand has gently raised me, 

And healing balm poured in! 
Shepherd good! I follow 

Wherever Thou wilt lead; 
No matter where the pasture, 

With Thee at hand to feed: 
Thy voice, in life so mighty, 

In death shall make me bold; 
bring my ransomed spirit 

To Thine eternal fold!

Who once appeared in humblest guise below, 
Sin to rebuke, to break the captive's chain, 

And call Thy children forth from want and woel 

2 We look to Thee: Thy Spirit gives the light 

Which guides the nations groping on their way, 
Stumbling and falling in disastrous night, 
Yet hoping ever for the perfect day.

The holiest know, — Light, Life, and Way of heaven; 
And they who dearest hope, and deepest pray,

Join the war, and face the foe;

March, in heavenly armour clad:

Soon shall victory tune your song.

Though opposed by many a foe,

1 The Son of Man goes forth to war, 

A kingly crown to gain: 
His blood-red banner streams afar ; 

Who follows in His train ? 
Who best can drink his cup of woe 

Triumphant over pain, 
Who patient bears his cross below, 

He follows in His train. 

2 The martyr first, whose eagle eye 

Could pierce beyond the grave, 
Who saw his Master in the sky, 

And called on Him to save. 
Like Him, with pardon on His tongue, 

In midst of mortal pain, 
He prayed for them that did the wrong: 

Who follows iu His train ? 
Lambeth. ( Second Tune.) 



A glorious band, the chosen few. 

On whom the Spirit came, [knew, 
Twelve valiant saints, their hope they 

And mocked the cross and flame. 
They met the tyrant's brandished steel, 

The lion s gory mane, 
They bowed their necks, the death to 

Who follows in their train ? [ feel; 
A noble army, men and boys, 

The matron aud the maid, 
Around the Saviour's throne rejoice 

In robes of light arrayed. 
They climbed the steep ascent of heaven 

Through peril, toil, and pain : 
God, to us may grace be given 

To follow in their train.

Go forward, Christian soldier, 

Beneath His banner true: 
The Lord Himself, thy Leader, 

Shall all thy foes subdue. 
His love foretells thy trials, 

He knows thine hourly need; 
He can, with bread of heaven, 

Thy fainting spirit feed. 



Go forward, Christian soldier, 

Nor dream of peaceful rest, 
Till Satan's host is vanquished 

And heaven is all possest; 
Till God himself shall call thee 

To lay thine armor by, 
And wear, in endless glory, 

The crown of victory. 



Go forward, Christian soldier, 

Fear not the gathering night: 
The Lord has been thy shelter, 

The Lord will be thy light. 
When morn His face revealeth, 

Thy dangers all are past; 
Oh, pray that faith and virtue 

May keep thee to the last!

1 Holy Saviour, Friend unseen! 

The faint, the weak, on Thee may lean: 
Help us, throughout life's changing scene, 
By love to cling to Thee. 

2 Blest with communion all Divine, 
Take what Thou wilt, shall we repine, 
When, as the branches to the vine, 

Our souls may cling to Thee? 

3 Without a murmur, we dismiss 
Our earthly dreams of fancied bliss; 
Our joy, our consolation, this, 

Each hour to cling to Thee. 

4 What though the world deceitful prove, 
And earthly friends and joy remove? 
With patient, uncomplaining love, 

Still would we cling to Thee. 

5 Though faith and hope awhile be tried, 
We ask not, need not, aught beside; 
How safe, how calm, how satisfied 

The souls that clino; to Thee! 

6 They fear not life's rough storms to brave, 
Since Thou art near and strong to save; 
Thy hand can lift them from the wave 

Who, trusting, cling to Thee. 

7 Blest is our lot, whate'er befall; 
Nought can disturb, and nought appall, 
While, as our strength, onr rock, our all, 

Dear Lord! we cling to Thee. Amen.

When wake the birds, and all the shadows flee; 
Fairer than morning, lovelier than the daylight, 
Dawns the sweet consciousness, I am with Thee! 

2 When sinks the soul, subdued by toil to slumber; 

Its closing eye looks up to Thee in prayer; 
Sweet the repose, beneath Thy wings o'ershading, 
But sweeter still to wake and feel Thee there. 

3 So shall it be at last, in that bright morning, 

When the soul waketh, and life's shadows flee; 
Oh, in that hour, fairer than daylight dawning, 

Shall rise the glorious thought, I am with Thee ! Amen.

Peace, perfect peace, in this dark world of sin: 
The voice of Jesus, whispers peace within. 

Peace, perfect peace, by thronging duties pressed; 
To do the will of Jesus, this is rest. 

Peace, perfect peace, with sorrows surging round: 
On Jesus' bosom nought but calm is found. 

Peace, perfect peace, with loved ones far away: 
In Jesus' keeping we are safe and they. 
Peace, perfect peace, our future all unknown: 
Jesus we know, and He is on the throne. 
Peace, perfect peace, death shadowing us and ours: 
Jesus has vanquished death and all its powers. 

It is enough : earth's struggles soon shall cease, 
And Jesus call us to heaven's perfect peace. Amen.

Thou fount of life! Thou light of men! 
From highest bliss that earth imparts, 
Turn we unfilled, to Thee again. 

2 Thy truth unchanged hath ever stood: 

Thou savest those that on Thee call; 
To those who seek Thee, Thou art good; 
To those who find Thee, All in all. 

3 Thou art our life, living Bread! 

Give us to feast upon Thee still; 
To drink of Thee, the fountain head, 
Our souls athirst from Thee to fill. 

4 Our restless spirits yearn for Thee, 

Where'er our changeful lot is cast; 
Glad, when Thy gracious smile we see, 
Blest, when our faith can hold Thee fast. 

5 O Saviour! ever with us stay; 

Make all our moments calm and bright; 
Chase the dark night of sin away, 
Shed o'er our souls Thy holy light.

The King of love my Shepherd is, 

Whose goodness faileth never; 
I nothing lack if I am His 

And He is mine forever. 
Where streams of living water flow 

My ransomed soul He leadeth, 
And, where the verdant pastures grow, 

With food celestial feedeth. 

Perverse and foolish oft I strayed, 
But yet in love He sought me, 

And on His shoulder gently laid, 
And home, rejoicing, brought me. 

^Gouda. (Dulce Nomen.) 



4 In death's dark vale I fear no ill 

With Thee, dear Lord, beside me; 
Thy rod and staff my comfort still, 
Thy Cross before to guide me. 

5 Thou spread'st a table in my sight; 

Thy unction grace bestoweth; 
And oh, what transport of delight 
From Thy pure chalice floweth! 

6 And so through all the length of days 

Thy goodness faileth never: 
Good Shepherd, may I sing Thy praise 
Within Thy house forever. Amen.

Jesu, the very thought of Thee 
With sweetness fills the breast : 

But sweeter far Thy face to see, 
And in Thy presence rest. 

No voice can siug, no heart can frame, 

Nor can the memory find 
A sweeter sound than Jesu's Name, 

The Saviour of mankind. 

O Hope of every contrite heart, 
Joy of all the meek : 



To those who fall how kind Thou art, 
How good to those who seek ! 

But what to those who find ! Ah! this 
Nor tongue nor pen can show : 

The love of Jesus, what it is, 
None but His loved ones know. 

Jesu, our only Joy be Thou, 
As Thou our Prize wilt be ; 

In Thee be all our glory now, 
And through eternity. Amen.

Hark ! my soul, it is the Lord; 
'Tis thy Saviour, hear His word; 
Jesus speaks, and speaks to thee — 
Say, poor sinner, lov'st thou me ? 

I delivered thee when bound, 
And when wounded healed thy wound ; 
Sought thee wandering, set thee right, 
Turned thy darkness into light. 



3 Can a woman's tender care, 
Cease toward the child she bare ? 
Yes, she may forgetful be, 
Yet will I remember Thee. 



4 Mine is an unchanging love, 
Higher than the heights above, 
Deeper than the depths beneath, 
Knowing neither change nor death. 

5 Thou shalt see My glory soon, 
When the work of grace is done; 
Thou the Father's house shalt see, 
Say, poor sinner, lov'st thou me ? 

6 Lord, it is my chief complaint, 
That my love is weak and faint; 
Yet I love Thee and adore; 

for grace to love Thee more ! Amen.

Jesus, these eyes have never seen 
That radiant form of Thine: 

The veil of sense hangs dark between 
Thy blessed face and mine. 

I see Thee not, I hear Thee not, 
Yet art Thou oft with me; 

And earth hath ne'er so dear a spot, 
As when I meet with Thee. 

Like some bright dream that comes 
unsought. 
When slumbers o'er me roll; 

Solomon. 



Thine image ever fills the thought, 
And charms the ravished soul. 

Yet, though I have not seen, and still 

Must rest in faith alone, 
I love Thee, dearest Lord, and will, 

Unseen, but not unknown. 

When death these mortal eyes shall 
seal, 

And still this throbbing heart, 
The rending veil shall Thee reveal 

All glorious as Thou art. 

From Haxdel.

1 I love the Lord; He heard my voice, 

And owned my humble prayer: 
He makes my broken heart rejoice: 
He makes my soul His care. 

2 When hosts of foes beset me round, 

And threatened to destroy, 
In Him the wished relief I found; 
My heart revived with joy. 

3 The pains of hell, and fears of death, 

Encompassed me around: 



To Him I cried with faltering breath. 
And full deliverance found. 

Long as I live, I'll bless His Name, 
And triumph in His Word; 

By Him alone salvation came, 
Who is the mighty Lord. 

Trust ye the Lord, nor yield to fear; 

On His rich love depend: 
He will preserve you while you're here, 

And save you to the. end.

1 Jesu, King most wonderful, 

Thou Conqueror renowned, 
Thou Sweetness most ineffable, 
In whom all joys are found! 

2 When once Thou visitest the heart, 

Then truth begins to shine; 
Then earthly vanities depart, 
Then kindles love divine. 



3 Jesu, Light of all below, 

Thou Fount of living fire, 
Surpassing all the joys we know 
And all we can desire. 

4 Jesu, may all confess Thy name, 

Thy wondrous love adore; 
And, led by love's celestial flame 
But seek Thee more and more. 



5 Thee, Jesu, may our voices bless; 
Thee may we love alone; 
And ever in, our lives express 
The imasre of Thine own. iv.

We may not climb the heavenly steep 
To bring the Lord Christ down; 

Iu vain we search the lowest deeps, 
For Him no depths can drown. 

But warm, sweet, tender, even yet 

A present help is He; 
And faith has still its Olivet, 

And love it- Galilee. 

The healing of His seamless dress 
Is by our bed of pain; 



We touch Him in life's throng and 
And we are whole again. [press, 

Through Him the first fond prayers are 
Our lips of childhood frame; [said, 

The last low whispers of our dead 
Are burdened with His name. 

Lord and Master of us all, 
Whatever our name or sign, 

We own Thy sway, we hear Thy call, 
We test our lives by Thine!

To Thee, Lord, my Saviour! 

My spirit turns for rest; 
My peace is in Thy favour, 

My pillow on Thy breast: 
Though all the world deceive me, 

I know that I am Thine, 
And Thou wilt never leave me, 

O blessed Saviour minel 

In Thee my trust abideth, 

On Thee my hope relies; 
O Thou, whose love provideth 

For all beneath the skies! 
O Thou whose mercy found me, 

From bondage set me free, 
And then forever bound me 

With threefold cords to Thee! 



for a heart to love Thee 

More truly as I ought, 
And nothing place above Thee, 

In deed, or word, or thought! 
O for that choicest blessing 

Of living in Thy love, 
And thus on earth possessing 
*The peace of heaven above! Amen."

Jesus is my best of friends, 

Xone like Him 'mongst mortals bom ; 
And shall I whom He defends, 

Join the world. His goodness scorn? 
Nought shall raise' a parting line 

To hold me from His tenderest love ; 
One shall be His will and mine — 

Lifelong here, for aye above. 



Once He suffered death for me; 

In that death He conquered sin, 
Him redeeming still I see; 

Wondrous strength from Him I win. 
Who could sullen, sit complaining, 

Knowing Christ has sealed hie bliss? 
Who, the ransom gift disdaining, 

E'er could fly such love as His? 



In that well-proved love I bide ; 

Nought from Him this heart shall sever. 
Angel glory, mortal pride, 

Wealth or want shall part us never. 
Depth below nor height above 

E'er shall hold my soul enticed, 
Luring from a Father's love 

Mine henceforth in Jesus Christ.

In Jesus' love abiding, 

No change my heart shall fear, 
And safe is my confiding, 

When He, my strength, is near. 
The storm may roar without me, 

My hopes may low be laid, 
My God is round about me, 

I cannot be dismayed. 



Wherever He may guide me, 

No want shall turn me back: 
My Shepherd is beside me, 

And nothing can I lack. 
His wisdom ever waketh, 

His sight is never dim, 
He knows the way He taketh, 

And I will walk with Him. 



Green pastures are before me, 

Which yet I have not seen; 
Bright skies will soon be o'er me, 

Where frowning clouds have been; 
My hope I cannot measure, 

My path to life is free, 
My Saviour is my treasure, 

And He will walk with me.

I rest my weary soul on Thee; 

1 give Thee back the life I owe, 

That in Thine ocean depths its flow 
May richer, fuller be. 

Light that followest all rny way 
I yield niy flickering torch to Thee: 

My heart restores Its borrowed ray, 
That in Thy sunshine's blaze its day 
May brighter, fairer be. 

Joy that seekest me through pain, 
I cannot close my heart to Thee: 

1 trace the rainbow through the rain, 

And feel Thy promise is not vain, — 
That morn shall tearless be. 



Cross that liftest up my head, 

I dare Dot ask to fly from Thee; 

1 lay in dust, life's glory dead, 

And from the ground there blossoms red 
Life that shall endless be.

1 Our God, we thank Thee, who hast made 

The earth so bright; 
So full of splendour and of joy, 

Beauty and light; 
So mauy glorious things are here, 

Noble and right. 

2 We thank Thee too, that Thou hast 

Joy to abound; [made 

So many gentle thoughts and deeds, 

Circling us round ; 
That in the darkest spots of earth 

Some love is found. 



3 We thank Thee, too, that all our joy 

Is touched with pain; 
That shadows fall on brightest hours, 

That thorns remain; 
So that earth's bliss may be our guide, 

And not our chain. 

4 We thank Thee, Lord, that Thou hast 

The best in store; [kept 

We have enough, yet not too much, 

To long for more; 
A yearning for a deeper peace 

Not known before. 



5 We thank Thee, Lord, that here our souls, 
Though amply blest, 
Can never find, although they seek, 

A perfect rest; 
Nor ever shall, until they lean 
Upon Thy breast.

1 When on my day of life the night is falling, 

And, in the winds from unsunned spaces blown, 
I hear far voices out of darkness calling 
My feet to paths unknown. 

2 Thou here hast made my 'home of life so pleasant, 

Leave not its tenant when its walls decay; 

Love divine, Helper ever present," 
Be Thou my strength and stay! 

3 Be near me when all else is from me drifting, 

Earth, sky, home's picture, days of shade and shine, 
And kindly faces to my own uplifting 
The love which answers mine. 

4 I have but Thee, Father! Let Thy Spirit 

Be with me then to comfort and uphold; 
No gate of pearl, no branch of palm, I merit, 
Nor street of shining gold. 

5 Suffice it if, my good and ill unreckoned, 

And all forgiven through Thy abounding grace, 

1 find myself by hands familiar beckoned 
Unto my fitting place. 

6 Some humble door among Thy many mansions, 

Some sheltering shade where sin and striving cease, 
And flows forever through heaven's green expansions 
The river of Thy peace. 

7 There from the music round about/ me stealing, 

I fain would learn the new and holy song, 
And find at last, beneath Thy trees of healing* 
The life for which \ long.

To Canaan's fair and happy land, 
Where my possessions lie. 

2 the transporting, rapturous scene, 

That rises to my sight! 
Sweet fields arrayed in living green, 
And rivers of delight. 



3 Xo chilling winds, nor poisonous breath, 

Can reach that healthful shore: 
Sickness and sorrow, pain and death, 
Are felt and feared no more 

4 When shall I reach that happy place, 

And be forever blest? 
When shall I see my Father's face, 
And in His mansions rest? iv.

For ever with the Lord: 3 

Ainen, so let it be. 
Life from the dead is in that word, 

'Tis immortality. 
Here in the body pent, 

Absent from Him I roam, 
Yet nightly pitch my moving tent 

A day's march nearer home. 

My Father's home on high, 4 

Home of my soul, how near 
At times to faith's foreseeing eye 

Thy golden gates appear! 
Ah, then my spirit faints 

To reach the land I love, 
The bright inheritance of saints, 

Jerusalem above. 

For verses 2, 3, 4, 



Yet clouds will intervene, 

And all my prospect flies; 
Like Noah's dove, I flit between 

Rough seas and stormy skies. 
Anon the clouds depart, 

The winds and waters cease, 
While sweetly o'er my gladden'd heart 

Expands the bow of peace. 

I hear at morn and even, 

At noon and midnight hour, 
The choral harmonies of heaven 

Earth's Babel-tongues o'erpower 
That resurrection word, 

That shout of victory, 
Once more, For ever with the Lord; 

Amen, so let it be. Amen.

1 Blest is the man who dies in peace, 

And gently yields his soul to rest: 
Who gains from earth the kind release, 
Leaning upon his Savior's breast: 

2 So fades a summer cloud away, 

So sinks the gale*when storms are o'er: 
So gently shuts the eye of day, 
So dies a wave along the shore. 

3 A holy quiet reigns around, 

A calm no earthly care destroys: 
Nought can disturb that peace profound, 
Which this unfetter'd soul enjoys.

4 Farewell, conflicting hopes and fears, 

Where light and shade alternate dwell:

Farewell, inconstant world, farewell. Amen. ii.

We are but strangers here, 

Heaven is our Home; 
Earth is a desert drear, 
Heaven is our Home. 
Danger and sorrow stand 
Round us on every hand, 
Heaven is our Fatherland, 
Heaven is our Home. 



2 What though the tempests rage? 

Heaven is our Home. 
Short is our pilgrimage, 

Heaven is our Home. 
And Time's wild wiutry blast 
Shall soon be overpast, 
We shall reach Home at last; 

Heaven is our Home. 



There at our Saviour's side, 

Heaven is our Home; 
May we be glorified; 

Heaven is our Home: 
There are the good and blest. 
Those we love most and best, 
Grant us with them to rest; 

Heaven is our Home. 

Grant us to murmur not, 

Heaven is our Home. 
Whate'er our earthly lot, 

Heaven is our Home. 
Grant us at last to stand 
There at Thine own right hand, 
Jesu, in Fatherland: 

Heaven is our Honne! Amen.

When shall my sorrows have an end? 

Thy joys when shall I see?

But every soul shines as the sun: 

For God Himself gives light. 
O my sweet home, Jerusalem! 

Thy joys when shall I see? 
The King that sitteth .on thy throne 

In His felicitv? 



Thy gardens aud thy goodly walks

As nowhere else are seen, [ing sound, 
Right through thy streets, with pleas-

And on the banks on either side, 

The tree of life doth grow. 

That tree each mouth yields ripened 

For ever more it springs [fruit 

And every nation of the earth 

To thee its honour brings.

There is a stream whose waters rise 
Amid the hills of Paradise, 
Where foot of man hath never trod, 
Proceeding from the throne of God; 
give me sickness here, or strife, 
So I may reach that spring of life. 

There is a rock that nigh at hand 
Gives shadow in a weary land. 
Who by that stricken rock hath rest, 
Finds waters gushing from its breast; 
Here grant me, Lord, my wand'rings 

o'er, 
To rest, and drink, and thirst no more. 



There is a people who have cast 
The strife and toil away at last; 
On whom — so calm their rest and 

sweet — 
The sun lights not, nor any heat. 
Give us with them at length to be, 
And send us here what pleaseth Thee. 

Thou only Good! Thou only Wise! 

Who dost so lovingly chastise 

To give more strength and add more 

grace — 
Grant me Thy spirit to embrace, 
The more, the more that nature faints, 



The glorious portion of Thy saints.

Where tears are ever banished and smiles have no alloy: 

With jasper glow thy bulwarks, thy streets with emeralds blaze, 

The sardius and the topaz unite in thee their rays. 

Thou hast no night, fair heaven; thou hast no time, bright day! 

Dear fountain of refreshment to pilgrims far away ! 

Upon the Rock of Ages they raise thy holy tower; 

Thine is the victor's laurel, and thine the golden dower.

1 High in yonder realms of light 

Dwell the raptured saints above — 
Far beyond our feeble sight, 

Happy in Immanuel's love. 
Pilgrims in this vale of tears, 

Once they knew, like us below, 
Gloomy doubts, distressing fears, 

Torturing pain, and heavy woe. 

2 Happy spirits, ye are fled 

Where no grief can entrance find; 
Lulled to rest the aching head, 

Soothed the anguish of the mind. 
Every tear is wiped away, 

Sighs no more shall heave the breast, 
Xight is lost in endless day, 

Sorrow in eternal rest. vi.

Worthy is the Lamb once slain, 
Blessing, honor, glory, power, 

Wisdom, riches to obtain, 
New dominion every hour. 

These through fiery trials trod, 

These from great affliction came; 
Now before the throne of God, 

Sealed with His almighty name; 
Clad in raiment pure and white, 

Yictor palms in every hand — 
Through their dear Redeemer's might, 

More than conquerors they stand. 



Hunger, thirst, disease unknown, 

On immortal fruits they feed; 
Them the Lamb amid the throne, 

Shall to living fouutains lead; 
Joy and gladness banish sighs, 

Perfect love dispels all fears, 
And forever from their eyes 

God shall wipe a Way the tears.

Gone! yes, but for a little while, 

The parting and the pain, 
Heaven shall restore the near and dear 

To those they love again. 
Gone, whither we shall follow soon, 

With them the joys to share, 
Which for His servants here below, 

The Lord hath treasured there. 



9 Gone ! no, they dwell with us unseen, 

They share our hopes and fears, 
In our rejoicing they rejoice, 

And sorrow in our tears. 
Unseen, God sets His angel watch, 

With constant care to keep 
The ways His children walk by day, 

And guard their nightly sleep. 



Departed, but not dead; yea, more 

Alive than when they dwelt 
With us on earth in mortal flesh, 

And all its weakness felt. 
They only lose their earthly part, 

They gain immortal youth, 
Who in the fear of God have lived, 

And kept His Word of truth. Amen.

1 Lo, Israel's gentle Shepherd stands, 
With all-engaging charms: 

Hark, how He calls the tender lambs, 
And folds them in His arms. 

2 "Suffer the little ones," He says, 

"Forbid them not to come: 
Of such is heaven; and souls like these 
Shall find in heaven their home." 

3 We bring them, Lord, with thankful hearts, 

And yield them up to Thee: 
Joyful that we ourselves are Thine, 
Thine let our offspring be. iv.

1 Saviour, who Thy flock art feeding 3 Never, from Thy pasture roving, 

With the Shepherd's kindest care, Let them be the lion's prey; 

And the feeble gently leading, Let Thy tenderness, so loving, 

While the lambs Thy bosom share. Keep them all life's dangerous way. 

2 Now, these little ones receiving, 4 Then, within Thy fold eternal, 

Fold them in Thy gracious arm; Let them find a resting-place; 

There we know, Thy Word believing, Feed in pastures ever vernal, 

Onlv there secure from harm! Drink the rivers of Thy grace! ix.

1 Guide me, Thou great Jehovah, 

Pilgrim through this barren land; 
I am weak, but Thou art mighty; 

Hold me with Thy powerful hand; 
Bread of heaven, Bread of heaven, 
Feed me now and evermore. 

2 Open, Lord, the crystal fountain 

Whence the living waters flow; 
Let the fiery, cloudy pillar 



Guide me all my journey through: 
Strong Deliverer, Strong Deliverer, 
Be Thou still my Strength and Shield. 

When I tread the verge of Jordan, 
Bid my anxious fears subside; 

Bear me through the swelling current, 
Land me safe on Canaan's side: 

Songs of praises, Songs of praises 

I will ever give to Thee.

To Thee, God in heaven, 

This little one we bring; 
Giving to Thee what Thou hast given,— 

Our dearest offering. 

Into a world of toil 

These little feet will roam, 
Where sin its purity may soil, 

Where care and grief may come. 
Oh, let Thy Word of love, 

With influence serene, 
Come down, like water, from above, 

To comfort and make clean! v. 

To Him who children blessed, 
And suffered them to come, — 

To Him who took them to His breast 
We bring these childreu home. 

To Thee, O God, whose face 

Their spirits still behold, 
We bring them, praying that Thy grace 

May keep, Thine arms enfold. 

And as this water falls 

On each unconscious brow, 
Thy Holy Spirit grant, Lord, 

To keep them pure as now ! v.

Father, to us Thy children, humbly kneeling, 
Conscious of weakness, ign'rance, sin, and shame, 
Give such a force of holy thought and feeling, 
That we may live to glorify Thy name; 

That we may conquer base desire and passion, 
That we may rise from selfish thought and will, 
O'ercome the world's allurement, threat, and fashion, 

Walk humbly, gently, leaning on Thee still. 
Lord, let Thy goodness by our minds be seen, 
Tokens of mercy on our souls be sealed: 
Lord, if Thou wilt, Thy power can make us clean; 

,Oh, speak the word, Thy servants shall be healed! Amen.

O Lord, Thou art the Way, 

Thyself reveal to me: 
help me, Saviour, day by day, 

To humbly walk with Thee. 

Thou art the Truth Divine, 

Thy fullness may I see: 
Believe, and find the promise mine; 

"The Truth shall make vou free." 



Thou art my Life, O Lord, 

O give Thyself to me: 
Thine all-sufficient strength afford, 

Till I can rest in Thee. 

Guide all my steps aright, 

With light my spirit fill: 
And with Thy love's own sovereign 
might, 

Conform me to Thv will. Amen v.

Jesus, I my cross have taken, 

• All to leave and follow Thee: 
Naked, poor, despised, forsaken, 

Thou from hence my all shalt be; 
Perish, every fond ambitiou, 

All I've sought or hoped or known, 
Yet how rich is my condition! 

God and heaven are still my own! 



Let the world despise and leave me, 

They have left my Saviour, too; 
Human hearts and looks deceive me; 

Thou art not, like man, untrue; 
And while Thou shalt smile upon me, 

God of wisdom, love, and might, 
Foes may hate, and friends may shun 
me, 

Show Thy face and all is bright. 



I have called Thee, Abba, Father 

I have stayed my heart on Thee; 
Storms may howl, and clouds may 
gather, 

All must work for good to me. 
Man may trouble and distress me, 

'Twill but drive me to Thy breast; 
Life with trials hard may press me, 

Heaven will bring me sweeter rest; 



4 Soul, then know Thy full salvation, 

Rise o'er sin and fear and care; 
Joy to find in every station 

Something still to do or bear. 
Soon shall close thy earthly mission, 

Soon shall pass thy pilgrim days, 
Hope shall change to glad fruition, 

Faith to sight an'd prayer to praise.

How blessed is the heavenly choice, 
Of Thee my Saviour and my Lord: 

Well may my grateful heart rejoice, 
Iu firmly resting on Thy Word. 



2 Oh, happy bond, that seals my vows 
To Him who merits all my love: 
Let cheerful anthems fill the house, 
While to His altar now I move. 



Now rest, my long-divided heart, 
Firm on the Rock of ages, rest: 

Here have I found a nobler part, 
Here heavenly pleasures fill my

High Heaven, that hears the solemn

The vow renewed shall daily hear; 
Till ih life's latest hour I bow, 

And bless in death a bond so dear.

To thy Prince and Shepherd bringing 

Sweetest hymns of love and praise, 
Yet thou sbalt not reach the measure 
Of His worth, by all the treasure 

Of thy most ecstatic lays! 

Of all wonders that can thrill thee, 
And with adoration fill thee, 

What than this can greater be, 
That Himself to thee He giveth? — 
He in faith that eateth, liveth, — 

For the Bread of life is He. 

Fill thy lips to overflowing 

With sweet praise, His mercy showing 

Who this heavenly table spread. 
On this day so glad and holy, 
To each hungering spirit lowly 

Giveth He the living Bread.

Make them glow with holy love;

Set our hearts on things above, vi. 



2 Thou dost call us to this feast, 

Thou hast said, "remember me:" 
May we come with trustful hearts, 
Hearts devoted, Lord, to Thee.

1 Jesus spreads His banner o'er us, 

Cheers our famished souls with food; 
He the banquet spreads before us, 
Of His mystic flesh and blood. 

2 Precious banquet; bread of heaven; 

Wine of gladness, flowing free: 
May we taste it, kindly given, 
In remembrance, Lord, of Thee! 

3 In Thy trial and rejection; 

In Thy great humility; 
In Thy glorious resurrection; 
May we, Lord, remember Thee!

From heaven, the eternal mercy-seat, 

Thy blessing on ns pour, 
And make our inmost souls to be 

A habitation meet for Thee. 

2 Thy flesh, in loving kindness given; 

Thy blood in mercy shed; 
With this immortal food from heaven, 

Lord, let our souls be fed; 
And as we round Thy table kneel, 

Help us Thy quickening grace to feel. 

3 Be Thou, all-glorious Saviour! nigh; 

Accept the humble prayer, 
The contrite soul's repentant sigh, 

The sinner's heartfelt tear; 
And let our adoration rise, 

As fragrant incense, to the skies.

Thy guiding hand cause them to see: 
And give them skill to guide Thy flock, 
In righteous ways to Thee their Rock. 

3 Thy sheep and lambs help them to 

lead, 
In pastures green where they may feed, 
That by the waters of Thy grace, 
They all may grow in love and peace. 

4 Give them the knowledge of Thy Word, 
Draw them by love to Thee, their

And Thine ordained servants bless; 



Graces and gifts to each supply. 
And clothe Thy priests with righteous-

Within Thy temple when they stand, 
To teach the truth as taught by Thee, 
Saviour, like stars in Thy right hand. 
Let all Thy Church's pastors be. 

Wisdom, and zeal, and love impart. 
Firmness and meekness from above, 
To bear Thy people in their heart. 
And love the souls whom Thou dost 
love. 

To love, and pray, and never faint, 
By day and night their guard to keep, 
To warn the sinner, cheer the saint. 
To feed Thy lambs, and tend Thy 
sheep. 

So, when their work is finished here, 
They may in hope their charge resign; 
So, when their Master shall appear, 
They may with crowns of glory shine. 
Amen. hi.

For means of grace and hopes'of heav'n, 
What can to Thee,0 Lord, be given, 

Who givest all? 
We lose what on ourselves we spend, 
We have as treasures without end 
Whatever, Lord, to Thee we lend, 

Who givest all. Amen. 



1 Praise to God, immortal praise, 
For the love that crowns our days; 
Bounteous source of every joy, 
Let Thy praise our tongues employ. 

2 For the blessings of the field ; 
For the stores the gardens yield; 
For the vine's exalted juice; 
For the generous olive's use. 

3 Flocks that whiten all the plain: 
Yellow sheaves of ripen'd grain; 
Clouds that drop their fattening dews; 
Suns that temperate warmth diffuse: 

4 All that spring with bounteous hand 
Scatters o'er the smiling land, 

All that liberal autumn pours 
From her rich o'erflowing stores: 



Music on opposite page.

These to Thee, my God, we owe, 
Source whence all our blessings flow; 
And for these my soul shall raise 
Grateful vows and solemn praise. 

Yet, should rising whirlwinds tear 
From its stem the ripening ear ; 
Should the fig-tree's blasted shoot 
Drop her green untimely fruit; 

Should the vine put forth no more, 
Nor the olive yield her store; 
Though the sickening flocks should fall, 
And the herds desert the stall ; 

Yet to Thee my soul should raise 
Grateful vows and solemn praise; 
And, when every blessing 's flown, 
Love Thee for Thyself alone.

1 Rejoice to-day with one accord, 

Sing out with exultation; 
Rejoice and praise our mighty Lord, 

Whose arm hath brought salvation; 
His works of love proclaim 
The greatness of His name; 
For He is God alone 
Who hath His mercy shown; 

Let all His saints adore Him! 

2 When, in distress, to Him we cried, 

He heard our sad complaining: 
trust in Him, whatever betide, 
His love is all sustaining; 
Triumphant songs of praise 



To Him our hearts shall raise; 
Now every voice shall say, 
" praise our God alway;" 
Let all His saints adore Him! 



Rejoice to-day with one accord,

Whose arm hath brought salvation;

Who hath His mercy shown; 
Let all His saints adore Him.

From every mountain-side 

Let freedom ring!

Thy woods and templed hills; 
My heart with rapture thrills 

Like that above.

Hear our song of thankfulness;

In the coming year shall tread 
With Thy rod and staff, God, 
Comfort Thou his dying bed. 



2 In our weakness and distress, 4 Keep us faithful, keep us pure, 
Rock of strength, be Thou our stay; Keep us evermore Thine own; 

In the pathless wilderness Help us trials to endure 

Be our true and living way. That shall fit us for the crown.

1 While with ceaseless course the sun 

Sped through the former year, 
Many souls their race have run, 

Ne'er more to meet us here, 
Finished now probation's day, 

They have done with all below ; 
We a little louger stay, 

Howylittle none can know. 

2 As the winged arrow flies, 

With speed the mark to find, 
As the lightning spans the skies, 
And leaves no trace behind : 



Swiftly thus our fleeting days 

Bear us down life's rapid stream: 

Upward, Lord, our spirits raise! 
All here is but a dream. 

Thanks for blessings past receive! 

Thy mercies now renew ! 
Teach us henceforth how to live 

With heaven and Thee in view ! 
More and more Thy Word unfold! 

Fill us with redeeming love, 
And, when life's short tale is told, 

Take us to Thee above !

Father, here we dedicate 

This new year to Thee, 
In whatever worldly state 

Th on wilt have us be. 
Not from sorrow, pain, or care, 

Freedom dare we claim: 
This alone shall be our prayer, 

Glorify Thy Name. 



Can a child presume to choose 

Where or how to live? 
Can a father's love refuse 

All the best to give? 
More Thou givest every day 

Than the best can claim ; 
Nor withholdest aught that may 

Glorify Thy Name. 



If in mercy Thou wilt spare 

Joys we yet partake ; 
If on life, serene and fair, 

Brighter rays may break ; 
Thee our hearts, while glad they sing. 

Shall in all proclaim ; 
And, whate'er the year shall bring, 

Glorify Thy Name.

1 Lord, give us light to do Thy work, 

For only, Lord, from Thee, 
Can come the light by which our eyes 
The work of truth can see. 

2 The way is narrow, often dark, 

With light, and shadows strewn; 
We wander oft, and think it Thine, 
When walking in our own. 

3 Yet pleasant is the work for Thee, 

And pleasant is the way; 
But, Lord, the world is dark, and w« 
Are prone to go astray. 

4 send us light to do Thy work, 

More light, more wisdom give; 
Then shall we work Thy work indeed, 
While on Thine earth we live. 

5 The work is Thine, not ours, O Lord, 

It is Thy race we run; 
Give light, and then may all we do 
Be well and trulv done. iv.

1 Lord, be with us when we sail 

Upon the lonely deep, 
Our Guard when on the silent deck 
The midnight watch we keep.

'Mid rising winds we hear 

PART I. 
4 As when on blue Genuesaret 5 So when the fiercer storms arise 

Rose high the angry wave, From man's unbridled will, 

And Thy disciples quailed in dread, Be Thou, Lord, present in our heart 

One word of Thine could save, To whisper, "Peace, be still!"

And shot and shell are answering Defend the right, put up the sword 

The booming cannon's roar, And through the world make peace. 

PART III.

Hearts sink, and cheeks grow pale, To steer our course afar, [prove 

Thy hope our anchor, lest we drift, 
Thy love, our polar star.

Thyself our Pilot be, 
Until we reach that better land 
The land that knows no sea.

Be praise from all Thy creatures now 

And through eternity! 



May we, within the Church, Thine ark, 
Secure outride the gale. 

And may our anchor, grappling still 
Fast moored to that firm Rock, 

By being held of Thee, hold on 
And brave the tempest shock 



To Thee whom only we adore, 
Who rulest earth and sea.

Protect them wheresoe'er they go; 
And ever let there rise to Thee 
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea. 

Amen.

Forward ! be our watchword, steps and voices joined ; 
Seek the things before us, not a look behind; 
Burns the fiery pillar at our army's head; 
Who shall dream of shrinking, by Jehovah led? 
Forward through the desert, through the toil and fight: 
Jordan flows before us, Zion beams with light. 

Glories upon glories hath our God prepared, 
By the souls that love Him one day to be shared: 
Eye hath not beheld them, ear hath never heard; 
Xor of these hath utter'd thought or speech a word: 
Forward, marching eastward, where the heaven is bright, 
Till the veil be lifted, till our faith be sight. 

Far o'er yon horizon rise the city towers, 
Where our God abideth; that fair home is ours; 
Flash the walls with jasper, shine the streets with gold; 
Flows the gladdening river shedding joys untold. 
Thither, onward thither, in Jehovah's might: 
Pilgrims to your country, forward into light. Amen.

Saviour, Blessed Saviour, 

Listeu whilst we sing, 
Hearts arid voices raising 

Praises to our King 
All we have, we offer; 

All we hope to be, 
Body, soul, and spirit, 

All we yield to Thee. 

Nearer, ever nearer 

Lord, we draw to Thee, 
Deep in adoration 

Bending low the knee: 
Thou for our redemption 

Cam'st on earth to die: 
Thou, that we might follow, 

Hast gone up on high. 

Great and ever greater 
Are Thy mercies here, 

True and everlasting 
Are the glories there. 



Where no pain or sorrow, 
Toil, or care is known, 

Where the angel-legions 
Circle round Thy Throne. 

Brighter still and brighter 

Glows the western sun, 
Shedding all its gladness 

O'er our work that 's done ; 
Time will soon be over, 

Toil and sorrows past, 
May we, Blessed Saviour, 

Find a rest at last. 

Onward, ever onward, 

Journeying o'er the road, 
Worn by saints before us, 

Journeying on to God: 
Leaving all behind us, 

May we hasten ou, 
Backward never looking 

Till the prize is won. Amen.

Is there grief or sadness? Thine it caimot be!

Day by day Thou find us doing what we can, 

Thou who giv'st the seed-time wilt give large increase, 
Crown the head with blessings, fill the heart with peace.

Conquered hath our Leader, vanquished is our foe! 
Christ without, our safety, Christ within, our joy; 
Who, if we be faithful, can our hope destroy? Cho.

Going on before.

Leads against the foe, 
Forward into battle 

See, His banners go. 
Cho. Onward, Christian soldiers, 
Marching as to war, 
With the Cross of Jesus,

Crowns and thrones may perish, 

Kingdoms rise and wane, 
But the Church of Jesus 

Constant will remain; 
Gates of hell can never 

'Gainst that Church prevail; 
We have Christ's own promise, 

And that cannot fail. Cho. 

Onward, then, ye people, 

Join our happy throng, 
Blend with ours your voices, 

In the triumph song — 
Glory, laud and honour, 

Unto Christ the King, 
This through countless ages 

Men and Angels sing. Cho.

With gladsome feet we press 

To Sion's holy mount, 
Where gashes from its deep recess 

The cooling fount: 
Oh! happy, happy hill, 

The joy of every saint! 
With sweet Siloam's crystal rill, 

That cheers the faint! 



2 Great City, blest of God! 

Jerusalem the free! 
With ceaseless step the path be trod. 

That leads to Thee! 
The martyrs' bleeding feet 

The saints, with wound less breast, 
Alike have sought Thy golden seat, 

To win their rest. 

3 The towers, that point on high. 

Our earth-bound spirits teach 
To scorn the world, and upward fly, 

True bliss to reach: 
To veil Thy shrine of lore, 

Lord, let no mist arise; 
No cloi 1 to hide the scene above 

From longing ey< 



We come, with fervent zeal, 

Beneath Thy hallowed dome, 
The pi *dge of our eternal weal, 

Our happy home! % 

Thine house our Sion stands. 

Though reared of earthly stone, 
The type of that, not made with hands, 

Yet still Thine Own. 

Lord, while Thy courts we tread, 

Guide Thou, our thoughts aright! 
May evil never lift its head 

To shame the light! 
But all be pure below; 

Each heart from taint be free, 
Unsullied, bright as sunless snow, 

Meet shrines for Thee! 

So this our festal day 

Celestial joy shall raise, 
While lips and hearts, conjoined, essay 

To hymn Thy praise. 
Tho very -tones shall ring,

Out on an ocean all boundless we ride: 

We're nomeward bound. 
Tossed on the waves of a rough, restless tide, 

We're homeward bound. 
Far from the safe, quiet harbor we've rode, 
Seeking our Father's celestial abode, 
Promise of which on us each he bestowed: 

We're homeward bound. 

Wildly the storm sweeps us on as it roars: 

We're homeward bound. 
Lookl yonder lie the bright heavenly shores: 

We're homeward bound. 
Steady, pilot! stand firm at the wheel; 
Steady, we soon shall outweather the gale; 
Oh, how we fly 'neath the loud-creaking sail: 

We're homeward bound! 

Into the harbor of heaven now we glide: 

We're home at last. 
Softly we drift on its bright silver tide: 

"We're home at last. 
Glory to God! all our dangers are o'er; 
We stand secure on the glorified shore. 
Glory to God! we will shout evermore: 
We're home at last.

1 I'm kneeling at the threshold, aweary, faint, and sore: 
I'm waiting for the dawning, for the opening of the door; 
I'm waiting till the Master shall bid me rise and come 
To the glory of His presence, the gladness of His home. 

2 A weary path I've travell'd 'mid darkness, storm, and strife, 
Bearing many a burden, contending for my life; 

But now the morn is breaking, my toil will soon be o ? er, 
I'm kneeling at the threshold, my hand is at the door. 

3 Methinks I hear the voices of the blessed, as they stand; 
Sweet singing in the sunshine of the unclouded land; 
Oh! may I come to join them, amid the shining throng, 
Uniting in their worship, rejoicing in their song! 

4 The friends that started with me have entered long ago; 
Ah! one by otto they left me to struggle with the foe; 
Their pilgrimage was shorter, their triumph sooner won; 
How lovingly they'll hail me, when my work too is done. 

5 The throng of blessed angels that know no grief or sin, 
I see them at the portals, prepared to let me in; 

Lord, I wait Thy pleasure, Thy time and way are best, 
But I'm wasted, worn, and weary; my Father, bid me rest. 



Amen.

1 Now the day is over, 

Night is drawing nigh, 
Shadows of the evening 
Steal across the sky. 

2 Jesus, give the weary 

Calm and sweet repose, 

With Thy tend'rest blessing 

May our eyelids close. 

3 Grant to little children 

Visions bright of Thee, 
Guard the sailors, tossing 
On the deep, blue sea. 

4 Comfort every sufferer, 

Watch o'er all in pain; 

Those who plan some evil 

From their sin restrain. 

5 Through the long night-watches, 

May Thine angels spread 
Their white wings above me, 
Watching round my bed. 

6 When the morning wakens, 

Then may I arise 



Pure, and fresh, and sinless, 
In Thy holy eyes. Amen.

1 Jesu, meek and gentle, 

Holy Lord most high, 
Pitying, loving Saviour, 
Hear Thy children's ciy. 

2 Pardon our offences, 

Loose our captive chains, 
Break clown every idol 
Which our soul detains. 

3 Give us holy freedom, 

Fill our hearts with love; 
Draw us, holy Jesu, 
To the realms above. 

4 Lead us on our journey, 

Be Thyself the way 
Through terrestrial darkness 
To celestial day. 

5 Jesu, meek and gentle, 

Holy Lord most high, 
Pitying, loving Saviour, 

Hear Thy children's cry. Amen.

My days are gliding swiftly by; 

And I, a pilgrim stranger, 
Would not detain them as they fly, — 

Those hours of toil and danger. 
For, oh! we stand on Jordan's strand; 

Our friends are passing over; 
And, just before, the shining shore 

We may almost discover. 

We'll gird our loins, my brethren dear, 
Our distant home discerning: 

Our waiting Lord has left us word, 
Let every lamp be burning. 
For, oh! we stand, etc. 

Should coming days be cold and dark, 
We need not cease our singing: 

That perfect rest nought can molest, 
Where golden harps are ringing. 
For, oh! we stand, etc. 

Let sorrow's rudest tempest blow, 
Each chord on earth to sever: 

Our King says Come, and there's our 
home, 
For ever, oh! for ever. 



For oh! we stand on Jordan's strand; 

Our friends are passing over; 
And, just before, the shining shore 

We may, almost discover. 

523 

1 Ho! ye that rest beneath the Rock 

On pastures greenly growing, 
Or roam at will, Christ's favored flock, 

By waters gently flowing: 
Hear ye, upon the desert air, 

A voice of woe come crying, 
While, cold upon the barren moor, 

Christ's little lambs are dying. 

2 "Go, feed my lambs!" the Shepherd's 

•call 
Comes down from realms of glory, — 
"Go, feed my lambs, and bring them 
all 
From moor and mountain hoary!" 
Fast falls the night, the bleak winds 
blow 
Across the desert dreary: . 
Great Shepherd, at thy call we'll go, 
And bring the wanderers weary.

1 Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer, 
That calls me from a world of care, 

And bids me at my Father's throne 
Make all my wants and wishes known ! 

2 In seasons of distress and grief 
My soul has often found relief, 
And oft escaped the tempter's snare, 
By thy return, sweet hour of prayer. 

3 Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer 
Thy wings shall my petition bear 

To Him, whose truth and faithfulness 
Engage the waiting soul to bless: 

4 And since He bids me seek His face, 
Believe His Word and trust His grace, 
I'll cast on Him my every care, 

And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer.

as Thou didst on Galilee 

The waters calm at will, 
When torrents raised by evil breath 

The sinking ship did fill: 
So now in my storm-shaken soul 

Awake with strength divine, 
And whisper, "peace, "to warring winds, 

And let Thy glory shine. 

Be Thou my pilot through the mists 
And storms that darkly rise. 

As o'er life's vast and dangerous sea 
My frail bark lightly flies.

From evil's blight restored; 
A nd isles of green and fragrant seas 
Bring Peace and sweet reward. 

No hand but Thine can safely guide 

The wearied mariner; 
Xo love but Thine can solace bring, — 

O Christ, sweet Comforter! 
Now trusting in Thy tender can' 

We fear no dark unrest, — 
Life's storms are passed; our troubled 
souls 

Lie pillowed on Thy breast.

As helpless as a child who clings, 

Fast to his father's arm, 
And casts his weakness on the strength 

That keeps him safe from harm ; 
So I, my Father, cling to Thee, 

And every passing hour 
Would link my earthly feebleness 

To Thine Almighty power. 



As trustful as a child who looks 

Up iu his mother's face, 
And all his little griefs and fears 

Forgets in her embrace; 
So I to Thee, my Saviour, look, 

And in Thy face Divine, 
Can read the love that will sustain 

As weak a faith as mine. 



As loving as a child who sits 

Close by his parent's knee, 
And knows no want while it can have 

That sweet society; 
So, sitting at Thy feet, my heart 

Would all its love outpour, 
And pray that Thou wouldst teach me, Lord, 

To love Thee more and more. Amen.

1 Oh, wondrous Name, by prophets heard 

Long years before His birth ; 
They saw Him coming from afar, 
The Prince of Peace on earth. 
Cho. The Wonderful ! The Counsellor ! 
The Great and Mighty God ! 
The Father everlasting 
And the Blessed Prince of Peace 

2 Oh, glorious Name the angels praise, 

And ransomed saints adore, — 
The Name above all other names, 
Our refuge evermore. Cho. 

3 Oh, precious Name, exalted high, 

To Him all pow'r is given ; 
Through Him we triumph over sin, 
By Him we enter heaven. Cho.

Holy Love, from heav'n descended, 

Let us feel Thy kindling flame! 
Thou hast earth and heaven blended, 

Love, that out of heaven came. 
Thou hast thrown a smile of beauty 

Over meadow, hill and grove, 
Thou hast quickened us to duty. 

Thou hast warm'd our hearts to love. 
Holy Love, from heav'n descended, 

Let us feel Thy kindling flame! 
Thou hast earth and heaven blended, 

Love that out of heaven came. 



^ 



Thine the gift of smiling flowers, 

Thine the lofty mountain pine; 
Thine the fruit tree's golden shower, 

Thine the close entwining vine. 
Stay Thou with us, and replenish 

Still our hearts with warmest love; 
Discord and dissension banish, 

Loving Spirit from above. 
Holy Love, from heav'n descended, 

Let us feel Thy kindling flame! 
Thou hast earth and heaven blended, 

Love that out of heaven came.

1 The bird let loose in eastern skies, 

When hastening fondly home, 
Ne'er stoops to earth her wing, nor flies 

Where idle warblers roam. 
But high she shoots through air and light 

Above all low delay, 
Where nothing earthly bounds her flight, 
|| : Nor shadow dims her way. :|| 

2 So grant me, Lord, from every snare 

And stain of passion free, 
Aloft through faith's serener air 

To hold my course to Thee. 
No sin to cloud, no lure to stay 

My soul, as home she springs, 
Thy sunshine on her joyful way, 
|:Thy freedom in her wings. :|

1 Waken, Christian children, 

Up, and let us sing, 
With glad hearts and voices, 

Of our newborn King. 
Up! 'tis meet to welcome 

With a joyous lay 
Christ, the King of Glory, 

Born for us to-day. 

2 In a manger lowly 

Sleeps the heavenly Child, 
O'er Him fondly bendeth 

Mary, Mother mild. 
Far above that stable, 

Up in heaven so high, 
One bright star outshineth, 

Watching silently. 



r 



Fear not, then, to enter, 

Though we cannot bring 
Gold, or myrrh, or incense, 

Fitting for a King. 
Gifts He asketh richer, 

Offerings costlier still, 
Yet may Christian children 

Bring them if they will. 

Brighter than all jewels 

Shines the modest eye; 
Best of gifts, He loveth 

Infant purity. 
Haste we, then, to welcome 

With a joyous lay 
Christ, the King of Glory, 

Born for us to-dav.

1 There were ninety and nine that safe- 

ly lay 
In the shelter of the fold ; 
But one was out on the hills away, 
Far off from the gates of gold — 
Away on the mountains wild and bare ; 
Away from the tender Shepherd's 
care. 

2 Lord, Thou hast here Thy ninety aud 

nine, 
Are they not enough for Thee? 
But the Shepherd made answer: This 
sheep of mine 
Has wandered away from Me: 
And although the road be rough and 
steep, 
I go to the desert to find My sheep. 



3 But none of the ransomed ever knew 

How deep were the waters crossed ; 
Nor how dark was the night that the 

Lord passed through 
Ere He found His sheep that was lost. 
Out in the desert He heard its cry, 
Sick, and helpless, and ready to die. 

4 Then all thro' the mountains, thun- 

der-riven, 
And up from the rocky steep, 

There rose a cry to the gate of 

heaven, 
Rejoice, I have found My sheep! 
And the angels echoed around the 

throne, 
Rejoice, for the Lord brings back His 
own!

The way, we know, is rough and weary; 
The evening clouds look dark and dreary, 

That gather where we sit and wait; 
But every moment brings us nearer 
A morning where the sky is clearer, 
4. brighter home than this, and dearer; 

And there is rest beyond the gate. 
One winter more is passing o'er us: 
Another spring lies close before us, 

With promise sweet of song and bloom. 
O childish joy in vernal flowers ! 
How oft the chilling tempest lowers 
O'er spring's green fields and budding bowers, 

And shades the sunny day with gloom. 

But in that happier country whither 

We turn our eyes, no storm clouds gather, 

No frosts the tender bloom destroy. 
Into Thy fold, Good Shepherd, lead us; 
In green and heavenly pastures feed us; 
Safe through the lonely journey speed us 

Home to the mansions of Thy joy.

When, His salvation bringing, 

To Sion Jesus came, 
The children all stood singing 

Hosannas to His name; 
Nor did their zeal offend Him, 

But, as He rode along, 
He let them still attend Him, 

And smiled to hear their song. 



And since the Lord retaineth 

His love for children still, 
Though now as King He reigneth 

On Sion's heavenly hill; 
We '11 flock around His banner 

Who sits upon His throne, 
And cry aloud "Hosanna!" 

To David's royal Son. 



For should we fail proclaiming 
Our great Redeemer's praise, 

The stones, our silence shaming, 
Would their Hosannas raise. 

But shall we only render 
The tribute of our words? 

No! while our hearts are tender 
They too shall be the Lord's. 



Amen.

1 "WVare but little children weak, 

Nor born in any high estate; 
What can we do for Jesus' sake, 

Who is so high and good and great? 

2 O, day by day, each Christian child 

Has much to do, without, within; 
A death to die for Jesus' sake, 
A weary war to wage with sin. 

3 When deep within our swelling hearts 

The thoughts of pride and anger rise, 
When bitter words are on our tongues 
And tears of passion in our eyes; 

4 Then we may stay the angry blow, 

Then we may check the hasty word, 
Give gentle answers back again, 
And fight a battle for our Lord. 

5 With smiles of peace, and looks of love, 

Light in our dwellings we may make, 
Bid kind good humor brighten there, 
And do all still for Jesus' sake. 

6 There 's not a child so small and weak 



But has his little cross to take, 
His little work of love and praise 
That he mav do for Jesus' sake. 



Amen*.

1 I think when I read that sweet story of old, 

When Jesus was here among men, 
How He called little children as lambs to His fold, 
I should like to have been with them then. 

2 I wish that His hands had been placed on my head, 

That His arm had been thrown around me, 
And that I might have seen His kind look when He said, 
Let the little ones come unto Me. 

3 Yet still to His footstool in prayer I may go, 

And ask for a share in His love; 
And if I thus earnestly seek Him below, 
I shall see Him and hear Him above — 

4 In that beautiful place He has gone to prepare 

For all the redeemed and forgiven; 
And many dear children shall be with Him there, 
For of such is the kingdom of heaven.

Happy there with Thee to dwell. Amen.

In soul and mind and person one. 
Be glory, praise, and service given, 
By all on earth and all in heaven. 
Jesus, our Lord, we praise in Thee 
The ever-blessed Trinity; 
And while before Thy throne we fall, 
We own Thee God and Lord of all. 



In childhood's blissful days descend, 
Inspire us for our being's end; 
And when our outward nature dies, 
Own us Thy children in the skies. 
To Thee our morning song of praise, 
To Thee our evening prayer we raise: 
Thy glory, suppliant, we adore 
Forever and for evermore.

1 I love to hear the story how the Lord from heaven came 
And did not fear to visit men in all their sin and shame ; 

But touched the sick and made them well, the blind, and they did see, 
And said of little children " Suffer them to come to Me." 

2 I love to think of Jesus as my gentle Shepherd Lord 

Who leads in heavenly pastures those who love to hear His Word: 
And when I am in sorrow, and sore trouble makes me fear, 
I hear Him say: " Be not afraid, My child, for I am near! " 

3 I love to speak to Him alone in word of song and prayer 
In darkest night and roughest way, for He is with me there; 
And so He guides me that each day I may not fail to see 
The way to heaven, that where He is, there also I may be.

1 A shepherd band their flocks are keep- 

ing, 
And gentle lambs are sweetly sleeping; 

When suddenly they all behold 

An angel in bright robes with harp of 

•gold. 

2 Glad tidings of great joy he bringeth, 
The azure vault with anthems ringeth ; 
" Emmanuel " awakes the song, 
And countless hosts the glorious theme 

prolong. 

3 "To you this day is born a Saviour, 
Your Prophet, Priest, and King for- 
ever;" 

" All glory be to God," they cry; 
"All glory be to God," let earth re- 
ply. 

i " On earth be peace with mercy blend- 
ing, 
Good-will to men, and love unending;" 
Thus sweetly sing the angel throng, 
And all the heavenly host rehearse the 
song. 



: r 



5 Thro' field and wood the song resound- 

eth, 
O'er hill and vale the chorus boundeth ; 
Exultingly the echoes roll, 
And hymns of triumph spread from 

pole to pole. 

6 The shepherds view the host returning, 
Their hearts with holy ardour burning; 
To Bethlehem they wend their way, 
Repeating with glad tongues th' angelic 

lay. 

7 In haste they seek the heavenly Stran- 

ger; 
They fiud the Babe laid in a manger; 
With wonder and with awe they fall, 
And joyfully adore Him, Lord of all! 

8 Now every voice with rapture swell- 

eth, 
For Christ the Lord with mortals dwell- 

eth; 
Let men and angels Him adore, 
And shout their glad Hosannas ever- 
more.

Child Jesus comes from heavenly height 
To save us from sin's keeping; 

On manger straw, in darksome night, 
The Blessed One lies sleeping. 

The star smiles down, the angels greet, 

The oxen kiss the Baby's feet: 
Alleluia, Alleluia, Child Jesus! 



Take courage, soul in grief cast down, 

Forget the bitter dealing: 
A Child is born in David's town 

To touch all souls with healing. 
Then let us go and seek the Child, 
Children like Him meek, undefiled, 

Alleluia, Alleluia, Child Jesus!

It came upon the midnight clear, 

That glorious soug of old, 
From angels bending near the earth, 

To touch their harps of gold. 
"Peace on the earth, good-will to men," 

From heaven's All-gracious King, 
The world in solemn stillness lay 

lo hear the angels sing. 



2 Still through the cloven skies they come 

With peaceful wings uufurl'd; 
And still their heavenly music floats 

O'er all the weary world: 
Above its sad and lowly plains 

They bend on hovering wing, 
And ever o'er its Babel sounds 

The blessed angels sing.

"0 how shall I keep uiy Christmas?" 

My heart whispered softly to me, 
For I had been reading the story 

Of the Lord's nativity; 
And slowly and clearly before me 

The words like pictures rise, 
And the scenes appear in the beauty 

Of the starry Syrian skies. 

O cradled He was in a manger! 

For lowly and poor was He, 
Whose throne is the splendors of heav'n, 

Whose pow'r is infinity, 
And He bore Hia cross to save us, 

To save us from death and sin, 
And He trod all alone the wine-press, 

To make us pure and clean. 



In glory the hosts of the angel- 
Came singing His song of praise, 

And filling the heav'ns with their 
In those wonderful old days: [music 

Singing "Glory to God in the highest !" 
And "Peace upon Earth," and then 

The mighty chorus of voices 

Peal'd forth, "Goodwill to Men!" 

"0 how shall I keep my Christmas?" 

As they kept it in heaven above; 
keep it with peace and thanksgiving, 

And kindliest deeds of love; 
And share with the poor and needy 

The joys which the Lord gives thee,- 
And thy heart shall keep with the 

The Lord's Nativity. [angels

While shepherds watched their flocks 

All seated on the ground, [by night, 
The angel of the Lord came down, 

And glory shone around. 
"Fear not," said he (for mighty dread 

Had seized their troubled mind) ; 
"Glad tidings of great joy I bring 

To you and all mankind." 



11 To you in David's town, this day 

Is born of David's line 
The Saviour, who is Christ the Lord; 

And this shall be the sign: 
The heavenly Babe you there shall find 

To human view displayed, 
All meanly wrapped in swathing bands, 

And in a manger laid."

Hark, a voice from yonder manger, 

Soft and sweet, 

Doth entreat,

Yon are freed; 

All you need 
I will surely give you."

Come, then, let us hasten yonder; 

Here let all, 

Great and small, 
Kneel in awe and wonder; 
Love Him Who with love is yearning ; 

Hail the Star 

That from far 
Bright with hope is burning. 

Ye who pine in weary sadness, 

Weep no more, 

For the Door 
Now is found of gladness: 
Cling to Him, for He will guide you 

Where no cross, 

Pain or loss, 
Can again betide you.

All praise to Thee, eternal Lord, > 
Clothed in the garb of flesh and blood ; 
Choosing a manger for Thy throne, 
While worlds on worlds are Thine alone. 

Once did the skies before Thee bow; 
A virgin's arras contain Thee now; 
Angels who did in Thee rejoice 
Now listen for Thine infant voice. 

A little Child, Thou art our guest, 
That weary ones in Thee may rest; 



Forlorn and lowly is Thy birth, 
That we may rise to heaven from earth. 

Thou comest in the darksome night 
To make us children of the light, 
To make us, in the realms divine, 
Like Thine own angels round Thee shine. 

All this for us Thy love hath done; 
By this to Thee our love is won: 
For this we tune our cheerful lays, 
A nd shout our thanks in ceaseless praise. 

Amen.

Hither come, ye heavy-hearted, 

Who for sin, 

Deep within, 
Long and sore have smarted: 
For the poisoned wounds you're feeling 

Help is near, 

One is here 
Mighty for their healing. 

Hither come, ye poor and wretched ; 

Know His will 

Is to fill 
Every hand outstretched; 
Here are riches without measure; 

Here forget 

All regret, 
Fill your heart with treasure. 



7 Blessed Saviour, let me find Thee; 

Keep Thou me 

Close to Thee, 
Cast me not behind Thee: 
Life of life, my heart Thou stillest, 

Calm I rest 

On Thy breast, 
All this void Thou fillest. 

8 Heedfully my Lord I'll cherish, 

Live to Thee, 

And with Thee 
Dying, shall not perish; 
But shall dwell with Thee forever, 

Far on High, 

In the joy 
That can alter never. Amen.

A Child of high renown; 
Most worthy of a sceptre, 
A sceptre and a crown. 
Glad tidings to all men, 

Glad tidings sing we may, 
Because the King of kings 
Was born on Christmas day. 

2 These tidings shepherds heard, 

Whilst watching o'er their fold; 

555 



' Twas by an angel unto them 
That nis;ht revealed and told. 
Glad tidings, etc. 

They praised the Lord, our God 

And our celestial King: 
All glory be in Paradise, 
This heavenly host do sing. 
Glad tidings, etc.

All this night bright angels sing; 

Never was such caroling. 
Hark ! a voice which loudly cries: 

" Mortals, mortals, wake and rise. 
Lo! to gladness turns your sadness, 

From the earth is ris'n a Sun, 
Shines all night, though day be done 

Wake, earth, wake, everything! 

Wake, and hear the joy I bring; 
Wake and joy, for all this night 

Heaven and every twinkling light, 



All amazing, still stand gazing: 

Angels, powers, and all that be, 
Wake and joy this Sun to see ! 

Hail ! O Sun, blessed Light ! 

Sent into this world by night: 
Let Thy rays and heavenly pow'rs 

Shine in these dark souls of ours 
For most duly, Thou art truly 

God and Man we do confess — 
Hail, Sun of righteousness! 

Amen

O could tongues by angels taught 

Speak our exultation 
In the virgin's Child that brought

3 Welcome thou to souls athirst, 

Fount of endless pleasure; 
Gates of hell may do their worst

Welcome, though an age like this

And the truth that makes our bliss

4 Yea, if others stand apart, 

We will press the nearer; 
Yea, best all-loving Heart,

Faithful lips shall answer thus 

To all faithless scorning,

5 So we yield Thee all we can, 

Worship, thanks, and blessing; 
Thee True God, and Thee True Man;

While Thy birthday morn we greet 

With our best devotion, 
Bathe us, most true and sweet! 
|| : In Thy mercy's ocean. :|| 

6 Thou that once, 'mid stable cold, 

Wast in babe-clothes lying, 
Thou Whose altar-veils enfold 
|| : Power and life undying, :|| 
Thou Whose love bestows a worth 

On each poor endeavor, 
Have Thou joy of this Thy birth

Above thy deep and dreamless sleep, 

The silent stars go by. 
Yet in thy dark streets shineth 

The everlasting Light; 
The hopes and fears of all the years,

How silently, how silently,

Where meek souls will receive Him 

H : The dear Christ enters in.:|| [still, 



For Christ is born of Mary, 
And gathered all above, 

While mortals sleep the angels keep 
Their watch of wondering love. 

O morning stars together, 
Proclaim the holy birth! 

And praises sing to God the King, 

|| : And peace to men on earth. :|| 

holy child of Bethlehem ! 

Descend to us we pray, 
Cast out our sins and enter in, 

Be born in us to-day.

Once in royal David's city 

Stood a lowly cattle shed, 
Where a mother laid her baby 

In a manger for His bed; 
Mary was that mother mild, 
Jesus Christ, that little child. 
He came down to earth from heaven 

Who is God and Lord of all, 
And His shelter was a stable, 

And His cradle was a stall; 
With the poor, the mean, and lowly, 
Lived on earth our Saviour holy. 

And, thro' all His wondrous childhood, 
He would honour and obey, 

Love, and watch the lowly maiden, 
In whose gentle arms He lay; 



Christian children all must be 
Mild, obedient, good as He. 

For He is our childhood's pattern, 
Day by day like us He grew, 

He was little, weak, and helpless, 
Tears and smiles like us He knew 

And He feeleth for our sadness, 

And He shareth in our gladness. 

And our eyes at last shall see Him, 
Through His own redeeming love, 

For that Child so dear and gentle 
Is our Lord in heaven above; 

And He leads His children on 

To the place where He is gone. 

Amen

Clear upon the night-air sounding, 

Sweetly echoing o'er the plain, 
Fell the angel-voice, announcing, 

" Christ is born in Bethlehem." 
Clearer, sweeter, swelled the chorus, 

From the angel host around, 
11 Glory, glory in the highest, 

And on earth good will abound." 
As the angels sang we sing, 

Glory to the new-born King, 
And our song we'll never cease, 
II: Glory to the Prince of Peace! :|| 



Prophets told the wondrous story 

Of the future King and Lord; 
Who from upper realms of glory 

Should descend, our Light and Word. 
But they knew not all His brightness 

Nor the fulness of His grace, — 
Could not join the heavenly chorus^ 

Nor the song of triumph raise. 
As the angels sang we sing, 

Glory to our God and King, 
And our song we'll never cease,

When Christ was bora of Mary free, 
la Beth'lein, in that fair citie, 
Angels sang with mirth and glee, 
In excelsis gloria ! 

Herdsmen beheld these angels bright 
To them appearing with great light 
Who said, God's Son is born this night; 
In excelsis gloria ! 

This King is come to save mankind, 
As in Scripture truths we find, 
Therefore this song have we in mind, 
In excelsis gloria ! 

Therefore, Lord, for Thy great grace; 
Grant us the bliss to see Thy face; 
There we shall sing to Thy solace, 
In excelsis gloria !

In Bethlehem's fields so still and bright,

Good will to men shall never cease! 
Sinners now shall find release: 

In excelsis gloria ! 

3 " For unto you is born this day," 
They heard the Lord's bright angel say, 
" Christ, the crown of prophecy" 

In excelsis gloria !

With songs of joy we come to Thee; 
Glory to Thy name shall be !

For they eternal life shall win.

The day of resurrection, 

Earth, tell it out abroad, 
The passover of gladness, 

The passover of God, 
From death to life eternal, 

From this world to the sky, 
Our Christ hath brought us over 

"With hymns of victory. 



Our hearts be pure from evil, 

That we may see aright 
The Lord in rays eternal 

Of resurrection-light ; 
And, listening to His accents, 

May hear, so calm and plain, 
His own "All hail!" and, hearing, 

May raise the victor-strain. 



3 Now let the heavens be joyful! 
Let earth her song begin! 
Let the round world keep triumph, 

And all that is therein! 
Invisible and visible, 

Their notes let all things blend, 
For Christ the Lord hath risen, 
Our joy that hath no cud. Amen.

Let the whole creation sing 
Joyous carols to our ting; 
Your voices raise 
In songs of praise 

On this glad day. 
All praise to Him be given, 
For the hope He gives of heav'n, 
For life and love that come to us 
This Easter mora. 
Gone the night! 
The world is filled with light, 
For He hath risen indeed, 

And we no more shall mourn. 



He rose, He rose, 
In triumph o'er our foes, 
For us the Lord of life arose 
This Easter morn. 

Now a nobler song of love 
Let us sing to Him above 
Whose gladsome light 
Dispels the night 

On this glad day. 
Let every heart and voice 
In this happy hour rejoice, 
The earth now stirs with gladness, 

Death's no more King. 

Gone the nights etc.

1 Lift your glad voices in triumph on high, 
For Jesus has risen, and man shall not die, 
Vain were the terrors that gathered around Him, 

And vain the dominion of death and the grave ; 
He burst from the fetters of darkness that bound Him, 
Resplendent in glory to live and to save. 

Refrain. Loud lift your voices in triumph on high 

For Jesus hath risen, and man shall not die. 

2 Glory to God in full anthems of joy; 

The being He gave us death cannot destroy. 
Sad were the life we must part with tomorrow, 

If tears were our birth-right and death were our end. 
But Jesus hath cheered the dark valley of sorrow, 

And bade us, immortal, to heaven ascend.

The Bened ictus. [Luke i. v. 68.] 

(AFTER THE NEW TESTAMENT LESSON IN THE MORNING SERVICE.) 

Blessed be the Lord God of | Isra- J el : 

For He hath vis'iTED | and re- | deemed His | people, 

And hath raised up an horx of sal- | vation | for us, 
In the | house of His | servant | David. 

As He spake by the mouth of His | holy prophets, 
Who have | been since the | world be- | gan : 

That we should be saved from our | ene- | mies, 
And from the | hand of | all that | hate us. 

To perform the mercy prom^ed | to our | fathers, 

And to rememBER His | holy | cove- | nant : 
The oath which He sware to our father j Abra- | ham. 

That he would | grant | unto | us. 

That we being delivered from the hand of our | ene- | mies, 

Might | serve Him | without | fear, 
In IioHness and | righteous- | ness, • 

Be | fore Him | all our | days. Amen.

WILL bless the Lord | at all | times : 
Continually shall His | praise be | in my | mouth. 

2 My soul shall make her | boast • in the | Lord : 
The humble shall | hear, | and be | glad. 

3 O magnify the | Loud with | me, 

And let us ex- | alt His | name to- | gether. 

4 I sought the Lord, | and He | heard me, 
And de- | livered ■ me from | all my | fears. 

5 They looked unto | Him, and were j lightened: 
And their j faces were | not a- | shamed. 

6 This poor man cried, and the ] Lord | heard; 
And saved him | out of \ all his \ troubles. 

7 The angel of the | Lord en- | campeth 

Around them that fear Him, J and de | liv ■ ereth [ them. 

8 O taste and see that the j Lord is | good : 
Blessed is the | man that | trusteth ■ in | Him. 

9 O fear the Lord, | ye His j saints ; 

For there is no | want to \ them that | fear Him. 

10 The young lions do lack, and | suffer | hunger : 

But they that seek the Lord shall | not want | any | good. Amen. 

THE Lord | is my | light 
And my sal- | vation ; | whom ■ shall I j fear? 

2 The Lord is the | strength ■ of my | life ; 
Of | whom • shall I j be a | fraid? 

3 One thing have I desired of the Lord, j that • will I | seek ; 

That I may dwell in the house of the Lord j all the | days ■ of my [ life, 

4 To bzhold the j beauty of the | Lord, 
And to in- | quire | in his | temple. 

5 For in the | day of | trouble 

He shall | hide ■ me in | his pa- j viliou : 



shall He | hide me ; 
rock . 



6 In the secret of his tabernacle 
He shall se^me | up up- | on a 

7 And now shall mine head be j lifted | up 
Above mine | enemies | round a- | bout me : 

8 Therefore will I offer in His tabernacle sacri- | fices of | joy; 
I will sing, yea, I will sing | praises [ to the j Lord. Amen. 

THE kingdoms of this world are become our | Lord's ■ and His | Christ's; 
And He shall j reign for- | ever and j ever. 

2 We give Thee thanks, O Lord | God Al- j mighty. 
Who art, and Who j wast, and Who j art to j come ; 



3 Because Thou hast 
Thy great | power, 



taken to Thee 
and hast reigned. 

4 Salyaiion | to our | God, 

Who sitteth upon the ] throne, and | to the [ Lamb. 

5 Amen : Blessing, and | glory, and | wisdom, 

And thanksgiving, and | honor, and | power, and | might, 

6 Be | unto our | God,

A S the hart panteth/or the ! brooks of ' water,

2 My soul ihirsteth for God, for the | living | God: 
When shall I | come ■ and ap | pear be • fore | God? 

3 My tears have been my meat | day and | night; 

While they continually say unto me, | Where | is thy | God? 

•1 When Ire- | member ■ these | things, 
I pour | out my | soul with- | in me. 

o For I had gone ■ with the | multitude; 
I went with them | to the \ house of | God, 

6 With the voice of | joy and | praise. 

With a multitude that | kept a | festi- | val. 

7 Why art thou cast down, ! O my | soul? 

And why art thou dis- | quiet- ; ed with | in me? 

8 Hope thou in God, for I | shall yet | praise Him 
For the | help ■ of His j counte- I nance. Amen.

Art thou weary, art thou languid . . 
Art thou weary, heavy laden . . . 
As above the darkest storm-cloud 
As helpless as a child who clings . . 
As now the Bun'sjleclining rays . . 
As panting in the sultry beam' . . .

Built by Jehovah's hand 

By the cross of Jesus standing . . . 

Cast upon the Lord thy care . . . 
Child Jesus conies from heavenly 

height 
Children of the heavenly King . .

Christian, seek not yet repose . . . 
Christians! awake, salute the happy 

morn 
Cleanse my heart, O Father, cleanse

Dost Thou in a manger lie ... . 

Down from the worlds of radiant

Draw nigh and take the supper of

Ere another day shall close .... 
Eternal Father strong to save . . . 

Eternal source of every joy ....

Father, I go to Thee 

Father, in Thy mysterious presence 

kneeling 
Father of mercies, in Thy Word . . 
Fattier throned on high 



Father, to us Thy children, humbly 

kneeling 
Father, whate'er of earthly bliss . . 
Tear not! God is Thy shield . . . • 
Fierce raged the tempest o'er the 

deep 
Fierce was the wild billow . . . . 
For all the saints, who from their 

labors rest 
For the beauty of the earth .... 

For thee, O dear, dear country . . . 

For Thy mercy and Thy grace . . . 

Forever with the Lord 

Forsake me not! O Thou, my Lord . 
Forth in Thy Name, O Lord! I go . 
Forth to the right, ye ransomed . . 
Forward be our watchword . . . . 
From all that dwell below the skies . 
From Greenland's icy mountains . . 

Give thanks to God ; He reigns above 
Glorious things of Thee are spoken 
Glory to Thee, my God, this night 
Go forward, Christian soldier . 
Go to dark Gethsemane . . . 
Go when the morning shineth . 
God bless our native land . • 
God is in His temple .... 
God is love. His mercy brightens 
Cod is love, the heavens tell it . 
God is my strong salvation . . 
God is t lie refuge of his saints . 
God moves in a mysterious way 
God of pity, Lord of grace . . 
God of the morning, at whose voice 



God that madest earth and heaven . 
Golden harps are sounding .... 
Gone! yes, but for a little while . . 
Gracious spirit — love divine . . 
Great God in heaven, Who by my bed 
Great God! Thou dost all nations rule 
Great God, we give Thee praise . . 
Great refuge of the weary soul . . . 

Guide me, O Thou great Jehovah 

Hail ! gladdening Light of that pure 

glory poured 
Hail, happy day ! thou day of holy rest 
Bail, »aered day of earthly rest . . 
Hail, the day that sees Him rise . . 
Hail to the Lord's anointed . . . . 
Happy soul, secure from harm . . . 
Hark, hark, my soul! Angelic songs 

are swelling 
Hark, hark, my soul! the Saviour's 

voice is calling 
Hark! ray soul, it is the Lord . . . 
Hark, the glad sound! the Saviour 

comes 
Hark! the herald angels sing . . .

How lovely are Thy dwellings, Lord . 
How precious is the Book Divine . . 
How shall we celebrate Thy love . . 
How sweet the charm where love 

unites 
How sweet the name of Jesus sounds 



I cannot always trace the way'. . . 

I close my heavy eye 

I do not ask, O Lord, that life may be 

I heard the voice of Jesus sav . . . 



I love the Lord ; He heard my voice . 
I love the voice Divine that speaks . 
I love to hear the story, how the 

Lord from Heaven came 
I'm kneeling at the threshold, aweary, \ 

faint, and sore 

I Deed not care 

I sought the Lord and afterward I 

knew 
I think when I read that sweet story | 

of old 

I want a principle within 

In all mv vast concerns with Thee .

Safe home, safe home in port . . . 

Saviour, again to Thy dear name we 
raise 

Saviour and Regenerator 

Saviour, blessed Saviour 

Saviour, breathe an evening blessing 

Saviour! 1 follow on!* 

Saviour, like a shepherd lead us . . 

Saviour, now the day is ending . . 
Saviour, source of every blessing . . 
Saviour, who Thy flock art feeding . 
Servant of God, well done . . . . 
Shepherd of souls, refresh and bless. 
Shepherd of tender youth . . . . 
Shine forth, O Sun of boundless love 
Shoujt the glad tidings, exultingly 
sing 

Since Jesus is my friend 

Mug with all the sons of glory . . . 

Sion, to thy Saviour singing . . . 

Sleepers, wake, a voice is calling . . 
Sometimes a light surprises . . . . 
Sound the loud anthem to hail the 

blest morning 
Still, still with Thee, my God . . . 
Still, still with Thee, when purple 

morning breaketh 
Summer suns are glowing . . . . 
Sun of my soul ! Thou Saviour dear . 
Suppliant, lo ! Thy children bend . . 
Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of 

prayer 

Take Thou the heart I cannot give . 
Teach me to do the thing that pleas- 

eth Thee 
Ten thousand times ten thousand 

The advent of our King 

The bird let loose in Eastern skies . 

The Bridegroom comes 

Th<- Church's one foundation . . . 
The dawn of God's own Sabbath . . 
The day is gently sinking to a close . 

The day of Resurrection . . . . | 

The happy sunshine all is gone . . 
The King of love my Shepherd is . . 

The light pours down from heaven . 
The Lord descended from above . . 
The Lord is my Shepherd, no want 

shall I know 
The Loni my pasture shall prepare . 
The Lord my Shepherd is .... 
The Lord our Saviour is the way . . 
The more thou puttest in the Lord 

thy trust 
The people that in darkness sat . . 
Tlie shadows of the evening hours . 

The Son of Man goes forth to war .

The strife is o'er, the battle done . . 183 
The way we know is rough and weary 530 
Thee we praise, eternal Lord . . . 
There is a book, who runs may read 
There is a land of pure delight . . 
There is a stream whose waters rise . 
There were ninety and nine that J 
safely lay ( 



They who on the Lord rely . . . . 

Thine forever : God of Love . . . 
Thine forever ! Thine forever ! . . 

This is the day of light 

Tho' faint, yet pursuing, we go on ( 
our way ( 

Thou art gone up on high .... 
Thou art the mighty King of kings . 
Thou art the way : by Thee alone 
Thou city of the angels, thou city of 

the Lord 
Thou hidden love of God, whose 

height 
Thou hidden source of calm repose . 

Thou Jesus art the way 

Thou knowest, Lord, the weariness 

and sorrow 
Thou Lamb of God, Thou Prince of 

Peace 
Thou, Lord, by strictest search hast 

known 
Thou Sun of Love whose radiant light 
Thou to whom the sick and dying 
Though all my foes combine . . . 
Though troubles assail, and dangers 

affright 
Through good report and evil, Lord . 
Through the day Thy love has kept us 
Through Thee as we together came . 
Thus far the Lord has led me on . . 
Thy holy day's returning . . . .' . 
Thy mighty power we sing .... 
Thy way, not mine, O Lord .... 
Thy will, O Lord, not mine .... 

Thy Word, O Lord, like gentle dews . 
To Christ, the Prince of Peace . 
To God I lift my eyes .... 
To God, the Father, Spirit, Son 
To Him who children blessed . 
To Jesus Christ be glory given . 
To Thee, O God in heaven . . 
To Thee, O Lord, my Saviour . 
To Thy temple I repair . . . 
Too soon we rise ; the symbols disap- 
pear 
Triumphant, Zion, lift thy head . . 
Try us, O God ! and search the ground. 

Up to the hills I lift mine eyes . . . 
Cp ye Christians, join in singing . . 

Waken. Christian children . . . . 

Watchman, tell us of the night . . 

We are but little children weak . . 

We are but strangers here . . . . 

We give thee but Thine own . . .

First Line of Hymn. 



We love the place, O God . . . J 
We march, we march to victory . . 

We may not climb the heavenly 

steep* 
We plough the fields, and scatter . . 

We saw Thee not when Thou didst 

come 
Wearily at daylight's close .... 
Weary of earth, and laden with my 

sin 
" Welcome, happy morning! " age to 

age shall say 
Welcome, sweet day of rest .... 
What glory gilds the sacred page . . 
What grace, O Lord, and beauty 

shone 
What within me and without . . . 
Whate'er my God ordains is right . 
When all thy mercies, gracious Lord 
When Christ was born of Mary free . 

When day's shadows lengthen . • 
When gathering clouds around I view 
When His salvation bringing . . . 
When I survey the wondrous cross . 
When, in the hour of utmost need . 

When morning gilds the skies . . . 

When on my day of life the night is 

falling 
When, overwhelmed with grief . . 
When shepherds watched their flocks 

by night 
When the heart is sad within . . . 
When the weary, seeking rest . . 
When through the torn sail the wild 

tempest is streaming 
Where for safety shall I fly? . . . 
Where the mourner, weeping . . . 
While my Redeemer's near .... 
While shepherds watched their flocks 

by night 
While Thee I seek, protecting Power 
Wlnle Thou. () my Cod: art my 

help and defender 

While with ceaseless course the sun. 

Who are these in bright array . . . 
Who is this that comes in glory . . 
Whom have we, Lord, in heaven but 

Thee 
Whoso in God alone confideth . . . 

With gladsome feet we press . . . 
With Bongs and honors sounding loud 
Within Thy tabernacle, Lord . . . 

Ye Christians, tune your noblest 

Btrains 
i"e», He knows the way is dreary . .
